Intramurals

In the championship game of intramural basketball, the Professionals, the men’s open league champion, defeated Sigma Phi Epsilon, the Greek Champion. The Professionals had defeated G-Unit to win the Open League, while Sig Ep beat Pike to win the Greek Championship. In this game, it was tight early in the first half, but then the Professionals pulled away, eventually winning 68-59.

The Professionals were led by Hilton Napolean, who had 23 points and 14 rebounds to go along with five assists, 2 blocks, and a steal. Abeku Wilson had 19 points as well for the Professionals in a winning effort.

The game’s high scorer actually came from the Sig Ep side, as Dan Kaczmarek had 24 points. Micah Dawson had nine points and a team high six rebounds for Sig Ep as well.

The game marked the end of intramural basketball, and the intramural scene now turns to softball as the last major sport of the season.

Also over the weekend, the University of Miami won the Ultimate Challenge defeating other local schools in the area. The Ultimate Challenge is an annual event on the UM campus that brings together local colleges like FIU, FAU, Barry, Johnson and Wales, and Lynn to compete in a variety of intramural events.
