The next game was the introduction of The Game’s team, La Familia, playing against Tradition. The gym was packed full of fans that came out to watch them play. As they went head on against Tradition, it seemed they were going to come up short their first game. Ryan Walton for Tradition was playing incredible, leaving anyone who tried to stop him unsuccessful. With seconds left on the clock, La Familia was down by 1. Franklin Session from La Familia took a step back jumper for 2, putting them in the lead. Tradition was not able to recover and La Familia won their first game of the season in a very close and exciting game!
Throughout the day other teams took the court, including the return of COA and Craig Smith. NBA All Star DeMar DeRozan and Ed Davis made their way to the gym to support and watch the games. The 2-time Drew League champions, LAUNFD, changed their name to The Clozers, winning their first game by 4. To see all the final game scores, you can check on the drew league website.
