Team Fancy Shocks Supernova

(BOX SCORE)

After two days of wild finishes and game-winners, it was only right that the last game of the weekend was a huge upset.

With Boeheim’s Army winning earlier in the afternoon, a win from SuperNova would set up an old Big East matchup between Syracuse and Villanova alumni in the Super. Only problem was Team Fancy is trying to take home $2 million, not revive old rivalries.

Fancy came out with serious energy and it didn’t take long for them to build a double-digit lead. Ice cold shooting from Nova didn’t help their cause. The Wildcat alum shot 32.4% (11-34) from the field in the first half, including just 3-11 (27.3%) from three-point land.

All of that combined for a 44-28 lead for Team Fancy at halftime. Fancy kept SuperNova at bay for most of the second before Nova made a charge late in the second half. A fast break bucket would have cut it to a one possession game with a couple minutes to play, but Nova couldn’t capitalize. The big first-half lead proved to be too much to overcome and Team Fancy knocked SuperNova out 82-74.

Delroy James came to play for Fancy, putting up a game-high 21 points (7-13 FG) and grabbing eight rebounds. Kyle Hunt added 15 points and seven rebounds as well and Team Fancy was 25-26 from the free throw line on the day. 

Reggie Redding led the way for Nova with 19 points, but shot just 6-20 from the field. Team Fancy is back in action July 20 at 7p.m. in Brooklyn, NY.
