Budd Grebb extras

Have a story in Saturday's paper about what's been going on with the Budd Grebb league so far.

Here's what didn't make the paper, plus scoring leaders/standings:

Bob Kennedy had a rule to follow at the annual draft for the J. Budd Grebb Memorial Summer Basketball League.

"When I went to the draft this year, they told me right off the bat, 'You get no Monessen (kids),' " Kennedy explained.

That's because Kennedy, who coached BeeGraphix, already has three of them on his roster — or one over the league limit.

Elijah Minnie, Luke Doptis and Noah Rullo have been with Kennedy, who coaches high school basketball at Bentworth, since they started in the league, and back then there were too many interested players to stick to the rule of two per team.

"I can't pick another Monessen kid until I graduate these kids," Kennedy explained. "You can only have two from each school."

Minnie, Doptis and Rullo not only have been loyal — they could've re-entered the change, but chose to stay with BeeGraphix — but good; last year BeeGraphix went 12-0 to win the Budd Grebb title, and this year the three rank among the league's scoring leaders.

Minnie, who transferred to Lincoln Park amid plenty of controversy, is averaging 19.0 points through five games, tying him with Charlie Scharbo of Campy's Pizza for second in the league. Doptis is 10th at 14.3 points per game, and Rullo is 21st at 10.5.

Dayshore Majors (Ringgold) is averaging 15.8 points per game, good enough for seventh in the league.

BeeGraphix recently had its 17-game winning snapped with a 73-58 loss to Farmers Insurance Thursday night, as both teams are now 5-1. Campy's Pizza, which is in fourth place at 4-2, plays both BeeGraphix and Farmers Insurance next week and could shake up the standings.
