EBC Day Twenty: Black Wall Street vs. Rich Soil Monstars
Breaking their trend of slow starts, Black Wall Street come out of the gates as if they have a point to prove today, putting the pressure on the Rich Soil Monstars from the get-go. Recently-crowned Nike Battlegrounds champion General Electric does the damage early, burning his man on three straight plays to help his team build a 16-6 lead by the fourteen-minute mark. A timeout helps RSM resettle their offence, but they’re only able to keep pace for the following minutes, although a monster put-back jam by Special EFX makes it look as if the momentum may be shifting in their favour.
The good work of “The Wire” and his teammates fails to make a sufficient impression on the game, however, as Black Wall Street’s GE and Garnett continue to do as they wish inside, keeping their squad comfortably ahead for the remainder of the game. Although RSM keep going at it until the bitter end (even running a full-court press at one point), they finish the game with only fifty-five points to their opponents’ sixty-nine, Black Wall Street remaining undefeated.
