XvsX Women’s League: Week 5

Written by: Italo Tassara Tuesday night picked up dramatically from the money game between the Cookies and Pandaz a few weeks back. It was for 1000 dollars, and it was a sweet and nice game to five. Steph Curry broke the NBA record on 3 pointers and Ashely broke the Pandaz heart hitting two quick 3 pointers calling game. Cookies win tonight’s basketball game. The quick 3-point baskets really made the difference during tonight’s game, the competition was intense. What a great basketball game to get the Van Nuys YMCA & XvsX started tonight. Game two gets started right on time! ATL Soul (blue) VS Cookies (white) The winner of game two will play for 1000 dollars next week.  They are throwing money out here.  Get some. The ATL Soul (white) vs Cookies (white) was game two on this freezing night at the Van Nuys YMCA. They should be playing hockey. The undefeated Cookies ran through the Atl Soul.  The Atl Soul looked a little chilly out there on the basketball court.  Atl Soul came out hustling but couldn’t keep up with the Cookies pace and shooting. There were still some great performances, especially from #12 Hunter (Atl Soul), clicking on all cylinders.  She had some excellent rebound putbacks, her remote shooting was on point, and she single-handedly brought the ATL Soul back in the game’s final minutes. #30 Wright ATl Soul, nice post up moves. #24 mamba ATL soul had a sweet spin move floater and some wing jump shots. #1 Sweat ATL Soul nice up and under move, made a couple of 3 pointer. #24 Jayda Boverro with the pink kicks hustling for the loose ball. #8 Benton went fast and hard to the basket she packs a big punch. #22 Arial was the player of the game. She pushed the pace, found her teammates, and hit the big shot when the Atl soul was making a comeback. Cookies remain undefeated 85-74. Third Game to end this amazing basketball triple header. Modelz (white) VS Pandaz (blue) winner plays next week for 1000$ Mr. World Peace couldn’t figure out why it was so cold when this game was on fire.  The Modelz who have been playing great as of lately led by their unstoppable #31 (Modelz).  The Modelz were looking for her early but the strategy against her is to double cause no one can guard her one on one.  The Modelz went up early in the game with buckets from #2 Guitierez and #8 Trinidad and were leading by 15 starting the fourth quarter.  The pandas came with big performances from #20 Candance and #1 Hearns. #31 post up bucket back-to-back lay ups. #22 Lucio had some 3 steals in the 1 qtr and some back-to-back jumper.  She also got T’d up chopping it up with #20 Candace. #20 Candance had a great game shooting inside shots, baseline drive shots.  She is never scared to shoot. #1 Hearns always with the lovely hadles and nice step back shots.  She also some nice reverse lay-up and a great bounce pass to #32 Thompson. #32 Thompson (pandaz) was causing havoc in the paint with her rebounds and defense.  She was playing #31 (Modelz) tuff. The final minute of play went down to Hearns making a tough step back jumper, but that’s cake for her the way she plays.  And Candance hit the running floater in traffic to give the Pandaz a one-point edge. Hearns and Candance were players of the game. Good win for the Pandaz Team! XvsX welcomes all fans to come and enjoy our women’s basketball games in the heart of Van Nuys!

In the first game, the Modelz got up to a big lead in the first half.  #31 was playing out of her mind; she couldn’t be stopped. She was playing the post like Anthony Davis, moving people out of the way in the key and faking the defenders out with pretty up and under moves. She even shot a long teo pointer on top of the key. She was holding a rabbit’s foot in this game! #2 on the Modelz in the Christmas spirit with the Kobe green grinches basketball shoes was making it rain like usual from the 3 point line.  She had gorgeous baseline jumpers, and a smooth dribble. The First 1 vs 1 gold game sequence was between #24 miss mamba Atlanta soul and #20 modelz #24 miss mamba hit the first 4 point shot in the league this year.  She has an excellent following to the basket.  #24 mamba kept the Atlanta soul in the game along with #20 Lyons with an iceman finger roll & #8 Elena Atlanta soul with the in-game 4 point shot.

She was the main attraction to this game, She was playing with lots of heart, and the pandaz was trying to contain her. She had a beautiful layup and was handling the rock with lots of speed and sudden stops. She packs a big punch in that small frame. She was hitting everyone with the Hezzy. #22 Arial Cookies came in late, but she was always looking to push the pace as she regularly does. #1 Hearns for the Pandaz, who was on fire last week, was coming off the bench this game as a new basketball strategy.

BY, ITALO TASSARA This XvsX basketball final of the women’s season in the XvsX league was a slaughterhouse at the YMCA Van Nuys. The money was up for grabs in the women’s championship for a cool 3,500 dollars.   The lights were bright, the stands were packed, and the music was bumping. But we really needed some milk instead of Gatorade because it was all Cookies during this basketball game. The cookies held no punches in this boxing match/basketball game and the basketball court was getting hot!  It was a very fast TKO in the first quarter, you would have thought Mike Tyson was out there with the rock.  This game was all milk and cookies, all Oreos and chips ahoy all sugar cookies. Take your pick of cookies, but they were all sweet and good! Layups and the shooting were on point. The cookies were amazing, the defense reminded us of Ja Morant! They completely dominated this game from the tip-off, they shot threes, had great back screens, controlled pace, and the entire momentum of the game. Cookies have been playing hard all season and this was the night that they put it all together. Arial controlled the pace and found the open players. Ashley was raining threes all night, they looked like the Golden State Warriors as they shot well and moved the ball excellently. It felt Casper the friendly ghost was guarding her. She was the MVP but she couldn’t have done it without her teammates.  All cookies plyers added to the achievement of the season. The coach played a great part also by getting them hyped and calling the right plays and not letting them get down earlier in the season. To be fair, the Pandaz started the game with only four players. That was a bad move and a gutsy move.  Hearns, one of the great players for the Pandaz this season wasn’t able to make the game, she usually brings the basketball up the court and gets the Pandaz in rhythm with her shake and bake offensive moves.  The Pandaz went down double digits in this first quarter, and the Cookies never looked back.  For the Pandaz  #20 Pandaz – Candyse played well in this game but they were just overwhelmed from the big hole they got themselves in during the first half. She and #32 Thompson would show lots of heart and effort in this loss.  Great sportsmanship in the XvsX women’s championship. But it was all Cookies in this game. Cookies won with a final score 97-68.   Congratulations to the Cookies for playing so great this season.  And congratulations to all the ladies playing the sport we all love.   — #8 Cookies -Benton was tearing up the lane with her strong drives to the basket.  Her first step blows by defenders and on the open court, she is hard to stop. #22 Cookies – Arial played one of her better games in the championship, her long braids wouldn’t get in the way of her game, she found open player the rock all night and she has a way of finding her teammates the ball in their sweet spot. #2 Cookies- Ashely was truly a marvel to watch, she hit big open shots all year and this game was not anything different.  I thought her shots would hit the top of the gym followed by a rainbow.  Some NBA jam-type fire shots.  She hit a 4 pointer at the buzzer for the cherry on top! RELATED: XvsX League Recap & Upcoming Championship Game! #24 Cookies – Jada played with lots of hustle and grind in the paint, she hit a beautiful hook shot in the paint. #2 Pandaz -Mazzeo hit two 4 pointers in this game along with a three, it must have been her James Harden basketball sneakers. #20 Pandaz – Candyse played well in this game but they were just overwhelmed from the big hole they got themselves in during the first half.  Her and #32 Thompson would show lots of heart and effort in this loss. Great sportsmanship on the basketball court in the XvsX women’s big championship game.
