Defending champ SF City set to face Bay Raiders for Pro-Am championship 

In a rematch of last year’s championship series, the top-seeded Bay Raiders will take on two-time defending champion SF City in the San Francisco Bay Area Pro-Am men’s basketball league finals.

Game 1 of the best-of-three series is tonight at 8 at Kezar Pavilion. Game 2 is Wednesday and, if necessary, Game 3 is Friday.

League MVP Marquel Hoskins and the Bay Raiders beat SF City 95-88 on July 14. While the Bay Raiders had a bye into the championship series and didn’t play last week, SF City had to beat Bay Pride 111-103 in the first round and South Bay 115-110 in the semifinals.

Other players to watch are the Bay Raiders’ Trevor Dunbar, a former St. Ignatius High School player who is entering his freshman year at Washington State, and Rob Jones, a former Riordan High School and St. Mary’s College player now in Greece, while SF City features Austin Nichols, last year’s Pro-Am MVP who plays in France, and Justin Dentmon, a former NBA D-League MVP who now plays in China.

“This summer’s Pro-Am has been one of the most exciting leagues in years, as Steph Curry, Aaron Gordon and Isaiah Thomas played before packed houses at Kezar. The championship [serie] should be no exception,” said Jon Greenberg, the Pro-Am director for the past 35 years.
