Basketball

The Michigan Athletic Club (MAC) offers adult basketball leagues each fall and winter for Men. The leagues take place on Sundays, with late afternoon to early evening game times. League format includes a minimum of seven league games followed by an all-inclusive post-season tournament. Three certified officials are used each game. Updated league standings, game results, and leading scorers are posted weekly. The league’s leading scorers are posted mid-season as well as at the end of the regular season. Awards are provided to the league champions.

Leagues offered

Men’s Fall League: mid-September to mid-November
Men’s Winter League: early January to mid-March

Registration takes place the few weeks prior to the season. Returning teams get registration priority. Registrations are by whole team only. Individual registrants will be placed on a team if possible. If enough individual players sign up to form a team, and team is needed, they will form a “house team.”

Fees are $275 per team plus an additional per player fee of $15 for MAC members and $40 for guests.  For additional information on the adult basketball leagues or to be placed on the league database, please contact Athletics Coordinator Mark Sanford at 517.364.8826 or msanford@themac.org.

The Golden State Cavs finished the regular season in a two-way tie for 4th place along with Zaytoons, both with identical 4–3 records.  Due to the tie-breaker procedure, the Cavs were placed as the 5-seed in the post-season tournament.  The Cavs got by Zaytoons in the first round and set up a long-awaited re-match with Pizza House–a team that defeated the Cavs in OT 64–62 back in February.  This time was different as the Cavs defeated Pizza House by a final of 57–42 behind Jason Franklin’s 16 points and Melvin White’s 15.  The victory over Pizza House vaulted the Cavs into championship game against MAC Fire on Sun, March 18.  The victory was awarded to the Cavs as they repeated as league champs after winning the 2017 Fall League crown as well.  The Cav’s players enjoyed the traditional Men’s Basketball banquet at the Pizza House.  The Men’s league will take a break over the summer and gear-up for the Fall League that is slated to start in mid-Sept.
