SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Game Time League season has wrapped up, and The Daily Iowan has analyzed all the action to produce its final regular-season rankings.

1. Monica's/Bob's Your Uncle (4-0)

Monica's convincingly beat Cullen/Falbo on Wednesday to wrap up the regular season as the No. 1 overall seed. The outstanding trio of Kachine Alexander, Jacqui Kalin, and MacKenzie Wescott averaged a combined 38.1 points per game during the regular season, and the team should fare well in the postseason as long as all three of them contribute.

The team averaged 95.8 points per game while holding its opponents to 64.8 points per game, a gap big enough to perfectly exemplify Monica's Game Time dominance.

Last Week: No. 1

2. Cullen/Falbos (3-1)

Cullen suffered its only loss at the hand of Monica's, when Iowa forward Kelly Krei managed just 8 points on 3-of-10 shooting.

The trio of Krei, K.K. Armstrong, and Melissa Dixon is averaging 30.5 points per game, and the team needs more contributions from its other players. Outside of Krei, Armstrong, and Dixon, Cullen has only two players who have scored at least 10 points in a game — Mackenzie Reed and Mary Halverson each got to double-digits on one occasion.

Last Week: No. 2

3. Vinton/McCurry's (2-2)

Kamille Wahlin, the league's No. 1 draft pick, scored 22.3 points per game in the regular season but didn't have much support. Kalli Hansen and Bethany Doolittle are averaging 8.5 and 14.8 points per game, respectively, but outside of those three, there is no consistent scoring. That will hurt Vinton in the playoffs.

Last Week: No. 4

4. Coralville Hy-Vee (2-2)

Incoming Iowa freshmen Samantha Logic (19.8 points per game) and Virginia Johnson (20.3 points) form one of the best one-two punches in the league, but they don't have a third option on the team.

That spells trouble if Logic or Johnson has an off-night.

Hy-Vee had won two-straight before dropping Wednesday's game, when the team gave up 79 points — the most all season.

Last Week: No. 3

5. Pelling/Culver's (1-3)

The team won its first game on Wednesday to snap a three-game losing streak. After giving up 83 points per game, the defense saved its best for last and held Hy-Vee to just 67 points.

Morgan Johnson is averaging almost 20 points per game, but the team doesn't have a consistent second scorer. Johnson will need some players to step up, or the postseason will be very short.

Last Week: No. 5

6. Two Rivers/Coach's Corner (0-4)

Jaime Printy missed her fourth-straight game with a wrist injury on Wednesday, and the team continued to suffer mightily because of her absence.

Two Rivers had several players miss games throughout the season, and that clearly hurt the team's chemistry. The squad lacks a true go-to player, and can't close out games. Expect it to lose in the first round of the playoffs on July 20.

Last Week: No. 6

Player of the Week: Morgan Johnson

Morgan Johnson has been a steady presence all season long for one of Game Time's worst teams.

She scored 20 points and pulled down 9 rebounds to lead Pelling to its first win of the season.
Pelling's chances at advancing past the first round of the playoffs rest on Johnson's shoulders.
