SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Daily Iowan’s intramural sports reporters scrupulously examined all of the intramural teams participating in the pre-holiday 3-on-3 basketball tournament.

It was a difficult task, but after several hours of deliberation, the writers selected the top 25 names.

Each reporter went through a painstaking selection process before submitting his favorites for the illustrious list.

Teams names that have been featured in the intramural flag-football and volleyball lists were not considered.

No. 25 — Glawe’s Group — Obviously a reference to our favorite South Dakota airport.

No. 24 — Wascally Wabbits — This team’s offense won’t be too hot, because Elmer Fudd was never a great shooter.

No. 23 — Fearsome Foursome — Isn’t this a 3-on-3 tournament?

No. 22 — Blue Chips — Not even close to the best Shaq-centric name on the list.

No. 21 — Apes — Their matchup with the Hand Bananas would be epic.

No. 20 — Lego My Ego — Did they mean the waffles or the Freudian concept?

No. 19 — D-Port — Can we check this team members’ green cards? Or are they from the mean streets of the Quad Cities?

No. 18 — With Liberty and PAP for All — Big ups to whoever can figure out what this name means.

No. 17 — Mini Heart Breakers — Opponents hope they come up short.

No. 16 — The Dirty Council — This committee approved most of the names on this list.

No. 15 — Hog-eyes — Word is the Hog-eyes have better shot at the NCAA Tournament than the Hawkeyes.

No. 14 — Spotie Otie Dopalicious — A classic Outkast reference to its first album, Aquemini.

No. 13 — The Hand Bananas — Seriously, don’t search this on Youtube.

No. 12 — Beat ’N’ Skeet — We’re not even gonna touch this one.

No. 11 — White Girls Can Jump — They should have a lot of rebounds.

No. 10 — Practice — Too bad their role model just retired.

No. 9 — Summit Scums — $5 says this team is made up of freshmen.

No. 8 — Just Put It In — That’s what she said.

No. 7 — Coming from Behind — Will they spot the opposing team a lead just to get it in the end?

No. 6 — Shaq Fu — This name is a Shaqtastic reference to the classic Sega Genesis video game.

No. 5 — Patrick Chewing — The only name that makes me want a Snickers.

No. 4 — C.R. Ballz — We’re sure the “C” and “R” refer to Cedar Rapids … it’s not a play on words or anything.

No. 3 — Hookt on Foniks — Clearly a team of English majors.

No. 2 — Strokin’ It — All over the court.

No. 1 — Premature Shooter — It’s a race against the shot clock. (At least they tried for a basketball reference.)

Honorable Mentions: Omelettes, Rienow 10!, Team Esteban.
