Blue Ninjas: (L-R) Back Row: Coach Slosar, Tony Rababy, Ryan Schneider, Cash Bonano, William Kleege, Coach Whitworth.  Front Row:  Douglass Whitworth, Robert Kleege, Jackson Slosar.

After an early season loss due to forfeit (too many sick kids), the Blue Ninjas (yes, their jerseys are orange, but that’s the fun of Junior Dunkers basketball) stormed back, never losing another game. This propelled them to the Championship game on Feb. 1. Their opponents were the vaunted Celtics.

From there, it was a seesaw battle ending with a 34-34 tie at the end of regulation. As the coaches prepped their squads for overtime, parents paced nervously, some left the gym overwrought with stress, and still a few from each team approached the League Commissioner, requesting that he consider a tie. With the authority only a Commissioner can muster, he indeed declared the Championship
