After finishing the regular season tied for first with a 6 – 1 record, Hagan’s Heroes earned a second-seed in the MAC post-season tournament due to their early-season loss to Pizza House on Sept 11th.  

After advancing past Taps 25 by a score of 62-47 in the first round, Hagan’s Heroes then went on to defeat Northern Home Improvement 66 – 50 in the second round, setting up a showdown with co-league champ Pizza House for the 2016 Fall League Championship.  Pizza House advanced to the championship game by defeating the 76ers 94 – 63 in the first round and Leaderless by a score of 68 – 55 in the second round.

The championship game took place on Sunday, November 13th.   The game was neck in neck for most of the first half with Pizza House maintaining a slight lead most of the way as they took a 34 – 31 lead into halftime.  The second half was just as close as neither team could take control.  Pizza House missed a potential game winner shot with 2 seconds left in the game.  Hagan’s Heroes quickly called their last time out to set up a potential game-winning shot.  That they did as Jason Murphy hit an off-balance 3-point shot from deep in the corner as time  expired giving Hagan’s Heroes a thrilling 57 – 54 come from behind win to win to secure the 2016 Michigan Athletic Club Fall League Championship.  Jason Murphy tossed in a game-high 39 points for Hagan’s Heroes in the win while Shane Ross and Dre Callahan scored 12 points each for Pizza House in the loss.  The two teams enjoyed a post-game gathering at the Pizza House afterwards.

The Men’s League will take a short break over the holiday season and start back up again in mid-January.
