Beast wins AAA-OAK championship!
WED 5/26 (4:00PM) -- Here's the Beast team photo. Names coming soon...
Vu Tran, Tyler Chin, Mason Chin, Ross Lim, Ryan Lim, Scott Narasaki, Tony Yu.
(Not pictured Aaron Javier)
TUE 5/18 (1:45PM) -- Beast staved off previous champion The Usual Suspects to win their first AAA-OAK championship! Beast only had single-elimination status. I would estimate that less than 1 out of every 10 championships are won by a team relegated to single-elim status, in an otherwise quasi-double-elimination format. The Dream Crushers made a valiant run at the title, but came up short against TUS.
Here's the final bracket. If Beast has a team photo, please have their captain email me and I will post it here...
Playoff brackets for AAA-OAK
WED 5/12 (8:00AM) -- Due to major complications with tipoff conflicts, I may need to postpone the AAA-OAK Losers Bracket and Championship games (one-and-done) to 5/23. We'll see how this shakes out.
TUE 5/11 (11:00PM) -- With single-elim status, Beast has reached the Championship game by sending DCA to the Losers Bracket. So it will be DCA vs TUS, then the winner vs Beast. The winner of that game will be the AAA-OAK champion, since Beast only has one life and either DCA or TUS would be double-elim'd at that point. As such, we know that the season will end this Sun 5/16...
TUE 5/4 (8:45AM) -- For 5/9 in the Losers Bracket, we have Colossal vs Fam, the two lowest seeds in the Losers Bracket, then the winner faces The Usual Suspects. Interestingly, I believe this was the Final Three teams for last season, and now only one of them will survive this season's playoffs (and still be stuck in the LB to boot).
In the Winners Bracket, if Beast loses, they're out, so the LB could very well shift forward depending on what happens in the WB.
In either case, we will have the Championship game on 5/16 and possibly a Repeat on 5/23, which will get us done before the Memorial Holiday break (and the new season). The matchups for 5/9 are obviously...
p3-WB: #5 Beast at #2 Dream Crushers AAA
p3a-LB: #4 Colossal at #3 Fam
p3b-LB: Winner-Colo/Fam at #1 The Usual Suspects
TUE 4/27 (9:15PM) -- Here's the latest and greatest...
Colossal gets a bye for 5/2 because there is no other team to play against in the Losers Bracket. Depending on if Beast, which has single-elim, advances, Colossal may have to traverse the Losers Bracket with a doubleheader (or not). So, here are the matchups for 5/2...
p2-WB: #5 Beast at #1 The Usual Suspects
p2-WB: #3 Fam at #2 Dream Crushers AAA
p2-LB: bye: #4 Colossal
Playoff seeds for AAA-OAK
|AAA-OAK FINAL STANDINGS |
|Western|| W|| L||PCT||GB|
|The Usual Suspects||6||1||0.857||--|
|Eastern|| W|| L||PCT||GB|
|Dream Crushers AAA||5||2||0.714||1.0|
WED 4/21 (1:00PM) -- The final standings thru 4/18 games have been posted. Here are the seeds going into the playoffs...
1. The Usual Suspects (6-1) -- won Western Conference
2. Dream Crushers AAA (5-2) -- won Eastern Conference
3. Fam (4-3) -- won head-to-head vs Colo
4. Colossal (4-3) -- lost head-to-head vs Fam
5. Beast (3-4) -- won head-to-head vs Flsh
6. Flashback (3-4) -- lost head-to-head vs Bst
7. Oakboyz (2-5)
8. Das Hoops (1-6)
That gives us these first-round matchups for 4/25...
playoffs1: #8 Das Hoops at #1 The Usual Suspects
playoffs1: #7 Oakboyz at #2 Dream Crushers AAA
playoffs1: #6 Flashback at #3 Fam
playoffs1: #5 Beast at #4 Colossal
The interesting one is Flashback vs Fam. As luck would have it, the two teams met in the final regular season matchup last weekend and Flashback won by 1. I would have no way of knowing if both teams were at full strength, but if they were, then even though they are a low #6 seed, Flashback knows it has a chance to upset. On the other hand, it is so hard to beat a team two straight weekends in a row.
Because I have explicitly listed the games for 4/25 above, I'll hold off updating the roadmap below until further notice.
MON 4/12 (10:30PM) -- Standings updated thru 4/11.
WED 4/7 (9:00AM) -- Standings thru 4/4 games updated.
TUE 3/30 (3:00PM) -- Standings updated thanks to Tony.
WED 3/24 (11:30AM) -- Moved 3/28 Oakboyz vs DCA to 4/4 because DCA did not want to play a doubleheader on 3/28. See roadmap and ground rules below.
TUE 3/23 (1:15PM) -- Standings updated, thanks to Tony (and Wylie last week).
THU 3/18 (12:15PM) -- New standings and roadmap posted.

BYES: Byes are only allowable
under special circumstances.
If you have a bye later in the season
that is not a formally requested bye,
due to gym fluctuations and other
unforeseen circumstances, that bye is
not locked down; that week's block
of games can still be shuffled around
as necessary until you formally request
that week to be a bye for your team.
1. Please make sure the number of
red rows (games moved from) equals
the number of green rows (games

season games listed with your

5. Any special late bye requests at
this point will require permission
from other teams to shuffle them
6. Special late bye requests can
*usually* be accommodated if your
team plays a double-header some
other week. But sometimes it
depends on if your opponent is
also stuck with a double-header.

THU 3/11 (1:15PM) -- Thanks to Mason Chin for letting me know that I had AAA-SFP posted here instead of AAA-OAK. AAA-OAK is straightforward. Beast, Dream, Fam, and Colossal asked for opening byes on 2/28, so they will have to make it up some other Sunday, probably a doubleheader. I'll figure it out as soon as the 4/4 Easter thing is figured out on a more global basis.
