Fantasy Tournament Finale: Team Kraft vs. Team Massimino

This is the finale of the Barney Rubble ’87 Fantasy Tournament. In last night’s game, Team Lappas finally won, defeating winless Team Severance. Barney provided this report from court side: "For Team Lappas, Bradley finished with 22pts/12 reb, Thomas had 17pts/10reb, and Kittles scored 15pts (4-6 from arc). For Team Severance, Paul Arizin had another strong game, scoring 20pts (5-9 from arc), Hennessy added 11pts and Schaeffer put in 10pts (7-10 FT). Raveling grabbed 9 rebounds but fouled out in an exhausting effort against a very tall front line for Team Lappas."
