3rd Place Game: Ghost Ballers vs Power

The Ghost Ballers finished the season with a record of 5-5 while the Power finished the season at 4-6.
BIG 3 Championship Game: Trilogy vs 3 Headed Monsters
The championship game between Trilogy and the 3 Headed Monsters definitely lived up to its billing. Trilogy faced an 11 point deficit in the first half, but if this season taught us anything, it was that you could never count out this team as they play with a near perfect synergy . The duo of BIG 3 Finals MVP , Rashad McCants, and BIG3 Defensive Player of the Year, James White, combined for 38 points and were enough to withstand the early blows by BIG 3 League MVP, Rashard Lewis, and the 3 Headed Monsters in Trilogy’s 51-46 victory in a thrilling and competitive championship game. Trilogy finishes the season with a perfect 10-0 record while the 3 Headed Monsters finish the season with a record of 7-3.
