The Latest Scoop From ComePlayDetroit…
ComePlayDetroit’s Winter Leagues have come to a close with great finishes!
In the Men’s Draft Basketball League, Benzinga.com celebrated team captain Ryan Goodman’s birthday by defeating Quicken Loans in one semi-final game with a 34-31 victory in overtime on a Ryan Goodman 3-pointer. Team Ambassador defeated the No. 1 seed, MileRail, in the semifinals and went on to defeat Benzinga.com in overtime with a 58-57 victory in the most exciting championship game in league history. Mike Sternberg scored (after catching an air ball from me) with less than 10 seconds left for the game-winning points!
