There is no place to start but with the Ninjas, who had a strong claim to the best team throne coming into Week 3, and put all doubt to rest. They rode Baycat's 12.5 points into the rarefied air of the 70's, both of which may be records (I recall one other team hitting 70 before, and I believe 12.5 was the standing record individually). Needless to say the Beez had no hope to overcome it. In a testament to the parity of the league this year, the Ninjas are the only undefeated team left. In a throwback pick em grudge match, The Triple were able trip up the Rawdogs, sending them to their first loss. Also suffering their first defeat were the Monkeys, who ran into a Warriors team desperate for a win. Lastly, the Gremlins suffered their first franchise loss, getting blown out by a strong effort from the Cardsharks.
If the Ninjas a the big story so far this season, the resurgence of the Las Vegas Hustle is not far behind. After a miserable season last year, they have been stellar so far, nearly hitting 70 points themselves. The Chronic were their victims in the blowout defeat. The Pirates were able to get things back on track with their first win of the year in a squeaker over the Sour Diesel. Both teams are now 1-2. Unfortunately the Reignmakers and Honey Badgers are still looking for their first wins, falling to the Silver Foxes and Blowfish respectively, both of whom are now 2-1.
