Second-Place Showdown

In honor of the 43rd President of the United States (heh, heh, heh), The Al Gore Cup is a forum for teams that finished second and most likely feel that they're more deserving than all of the other first-place teams to be in the championship bracket.

 

Teams are seeded 1-4 based on regular season records and play a best-of-seven semifinal round followed by another seven game series to crown the winner.

 

The winner receives a bonus of 1 million Benchwarmer Bucks.  The runner-up gets 500,000.

 

The 2012 Entrants (in order of seeding):

  • Malibu (86-64)
  • Minneapolis (80-70)
  • Tennessee (79-71)
  • Aksarben (77-73)

 

Semifinals - Aksarben vs Malibu; Tennessee vs Minneapolis

 

Finals - Minneapolis vs Malibu - Season series split 3-3
