(4) Grass Fairies: 38

(3) Salt & Pepper: 30

Justin Sanders had the league's first double-double (13 points, 15 rebounds) as the Grass Fairies defeated Salt & Pepper. The Fairies appeared to cast a charm which caused Salt & Pepper's rebounding to become nearly impossible. Monell glued the team together with 6 assists, and Holifield returned for the Fairies to help put together another balanced attack, with 5 of their 6 players scoring. Salt & Pepper, or just "Salt" without Gatobu, had only 21 rebounds to the Fairies' 35, and senior guard Grant Wells (23 points, week 1) had only 4 points. Jack Bandy and Carson Daniel combined for 24 of Salt's 30 points.

(5) D-League: 46

(7) Fireflies: 23

Robby Irgang's double-double (13 points, 11 rebounds) helped lead D-League to a commanding victory over the Fireflies, Irgang was aided by Ian Kossick's 18-point effort. D-League doubled their rebounding efforts (17 rebounds, week 1; 35 rebounds, week 2) and locked down Cameron Seater (21 points, week 1) from behind the arch. The Fireflies, missing guard Reese Kemp with a broken finger, were led by Wells Ducas' 12-point performance, adding to Seater's 5 points.

(1) Old School: 44

(2) Hufflepuff: 40

With a 21-point performance, coach Jason Price pushed Old School past a respectable effort from Hufflepuff. Although Hufflepuff out-rebounded by a 2:1 ratio, the team found little traction against Old School's defensive effort. Joining the Grass Fairies as the only other remaining undefeated team, Old School continues to live up to its pre-season hype. Hufflepuff put together another respectable, balanced performance led by Hahn's 14 points.

(6) Goon Squad: 48

(8) Dream Team: 32

Controversial refereeing spurred a chaotic blow-out, and the league committee voted to end this game early. With Fain (18 points, 5 rebounds), the Goon Squad was a completely different team. Tanner Richards had 20 points, all within the shortened game. Dream Team's future in the league is unclear: Crouse left the game with an injury (promising "day to day" updates), and league co-commissioner Grant Wells threatened to eject the team from the league altogether. "Fans: don't lose faith" said captain Noah Hayden, "We will rebound, it's a long season." It was mentioned the team may have to change its name to remain in the league.
