Win, or Go Home – LPYBL Playoff Preview

After a great 8-weeks of  LPYBL basketball, Wednesday, February 1st marks the start of the “win, or go home” mentality. The Playoffs for both the Blue and Red Divisions will begin, with Rome Development earning the top-seed in the Blue Division and East Paulding – Black in the Red Division. Although, these teams earned their #1 seeds through 8-weeks of consistent play, don’t count out the rest of the field. 

The #2 seeded Jayhawks are eager to play their way into the Championship game of the Red Division where they will most likely see the East Paulding Running Raiders (Black) for the third time. Both match ups between these two squads came down to the wire, with a total margin of victory for the Raiders of less than 15 points total. The Blue Division on the other hand had an even tighter race for the top-seed, as both Rome and East Paulding – Black went 1-1 versus each other. The tie breaker went to Rome as they had a higher margin of victory. See below for Wednesday night’s games:
