Who is running this new Central Oregon adult basketball program?

Peaceful & Recreational Athletics Inc. owner Mikal Duilio has been doing adult basketball for 24 years in Portland. Duilio owns/runs www.PortlandBasketball.com; this league runs 50 weeks per year.

Mikal Duilio and wife Ashlie have ties to Central Oregon with in-laws in Madras and friends in Bend. Mikal Duilio and family moved to Bend in July of 2016 and we live near Harmon Park. Separate from the adult basketball league called PortlandBasketball.com- Mikal Duilio also ran (2005-2011) the International Basketball League. The IBL was a minor professional basketball league with teams from New York- to Michigan- to California- 16 states total and even Japan and China played a few seasons; this league featured high scoring due to a unique rule in which teams only got 1 timeout per half. The IBL developed players for overseas play- in fact, in 2007 alone- 102 players went from the IBL to play overseas basketball. 25 ex-NBA players played in the International Basketball League.

During the 6 years of IBL action, Peaceful & Recreational Athletics Inc. and Mikal Duilio had a team in the IBL- the Central Oregon Hotshots; the Central Oregon Hotshots played at various high schools (pictured right) (also pictured is a separate game played in our final year- at the Redmond Convention Center's Hooker Arena). The Hotshots and the IBL could not survive past 6 years- but for those that- remember- these were some exciting games in Central Oregon.

We are here now to bring you a consistent, year around adult basketball recreational program. Take a look at each tab to review our products

WHY JOIN THIS LEAGUE at BEND HOOPS

Answer #1: we will not have a single forfeit- as every game scheduled will be played (how do we gaurantee that? answer: this league will text teams on the day of our games- to verify that teams are coming to the gym (& if a team is short a few players, we will recruit fill in players via a giant text list of spare players (currently I have 201 people on this list). Answer #2: you can preference Monday or Wednesday or Sunday (Sunday games occur 5pm range)- text 5033804539 for full explanation. Answer #3: gym floor at Bend Hoops is grippy (no more slippery- dirty gym floors). Answer #4: good refereeing (fouls are called- correctly- based on defensive positioning, not contact). Note- that a foul is defined as three parts 1) illegal position, combined with 2) contact that 3) creates a disadvantage. Therefore if you have established being in 'front' of offensive player (on the offensive player's final step of his/her shot/move), that should be a no call regardless of contact. No more guys running into defenders- yelling for a foul and getting to go to the line. Answer #5: we will provide 40-games per year in an attempt to build a year around consistent league. Answer #6: you can request a week off and your team will get a new game scheduled (with 6 days notice, you can request to not play a certain day).

60 MINUTE HOOPS $6 GAMES
offered 300 days per year in Bend

When I think of an open gym, I picture spending 2 hours of time to get a very uneven workout. So we created 60 Minute Hoops. How does 60 Minute Hoops work?

1. Mikal Duilio will text every player on our player list (126 players as of today)

2. Players text back to hold a spot in games; each game is limited to 12 players- players are divided into 2 teams by the supervisor and given uniforms (costs $5 to $6 per game)

3. The game tips on time with a jump ball (call your own)- we keep score. We play two halves of 26 minutes each (if the game accidentally has 14 players, we run 30 minute halves).

4. There is only 1 substitute per team, so in each half, each player will sit out 1 time (4 minutes)

Who: this is a private program so you must qualify by playing within our rules/style including 1) you can dribble a lot- and you can shoot a lot- but if you do BOTH you will be asked to not play- bc players who dribble all around the court- then proceed to shoot the ball as well (on same posession) because that type of player ruins the flow for everyone else 2) no anger allowed in this program (you must be peaceful & must be recreational to play in the 60 Minute Hoops program), no bragging, no putting other players down, no smack talking (this is a private program- that stuff is okay in other games but not in this 60MinuteHoop game) 3) if you are beat on a play, you need to let the player go (fouls from behind are considered unethical in a 'call your own' program such as this, so if you are beat- just let the player go); also hard fouls and wild reaches are unacceptable in this program 4) zone defense is not allowed (this is about getting a strong workout, it is not about winning (to make the point that this is not about winning, even with 30 seconds to go and game tied, the clock never stops- even if the ball is out of bounds).

What: normal open gyms take 2.25 hours to get your run in whereas 60 Minute Hoops Program will give you a better/more thorough workout in 60 minutes!

When: see listings at top of page- text 5033804539 Mikal Duilio- to hold a spot

Where: all games are at Bend Hoops

Why: these games feel like real league games - in fact- uniforms are provided for these games. And- Bend Hoops is well lit and has a grippy/clean floor.

Cost: $5 to $6 per game (but read cancellation policy)

Why do we have a cancellation charge: 12 players is the perfect # so when you cancel, you are in effect reducing a team to zero subs (which degrades the quality of the game) so this (refund policy below) will be enforced starting October 1st forward-

Refunds- if you cancel: Once you commit, you owe the amount of money for this spot, but if you give 5 hours notice (or more) you get $5 back. If you give us 4-hours notice, you get $4 back, if you give us 3-hours notice you get $3 back, 2-hours notice you get $2 back (meaning you owe use $3) and 1 hour notice- you get $1 back. Under 1 hour and we have to charge you the full fee.

Take a trip to Portland- play 3 City League games (& enjoy a Blazers game)

This 'travel team tour' will occur on these weekends: Saturday March 3rd/4th and/or Saturday March 17th/18th and/or Saturday March 31st/April 1st

How it works: text 5033804539 if you want to play on our 7 player 'Bend Travel Team' (we will charge you $39 for- our coordination of this & the 3 city league games that you will be playing). Players will arrange own transportation & overnight arrangements to get to Portland & back (players often will bring their spouse, family, a friend, etc. and often have their own contacts in PDX, so in essence we will 'meet at' the 5 events described below). If you are not connected to others going or people in PDX, let us know and will let you know 'who else is going' so you might reach out to each other and carpool and share a hotel perhaps.

  • Saturday 4:00pm  Meet at Columbia Christian School 9100 East Burnside Portland (play a city league GAME)

  • Saturday 6:00pm  Dr Jacks bar/grill (right outside the main entrance of Moda Center) for some pregame fun

Roster for the March 31/April 1 Trip (Blazers vs Memphis Grizzlies): 1. Mikal Duilio 2. TBA

About the March 31/April 1st trip : We will still start with a Saturday 4pm game as outlined above, but we will play end up playing 2 Saturday games (4pm & 5pm) and 1 Sunday game as well (4pm); the Blazer game is Sunday at 6pm (ends around 8:20pm- assumably everyone will drive back home at that point).

* Purchase your Blazer tickets direct: from Andrew Kastenbaum at email- andrew.kastenbaum@rosequarter.com (As a preview of how this will go, Andrew will most likely email you this exact price sheet- www.nba.com/blazers/groupstickets of which you will buy your tickets from him- these are about 20% better than if you purchased them without this avenue). Our group will not all sit together in the game bc we all have different tastes/budgets for tickets- but we will hang out before/after the game to some extent (at Dr Jacks). Andrew phone is 5039633956

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Legal Guarding position (1 min)

Legal defensive position is that you are square (in front of) opponent prior to their final step of the move/shot. After the 'moment' of being in front and in 'legal guarding position'- you can be moving backward and/or jumping up and contact should be legal, as seen in this video; in fact, if you are in front and displaced, it can be a charge call.

Incidental contact (21 sec)

This play could have been a no-call as the contact seems very incidental ('incidental' meaning- the contact did not create an unfair advantage for the person being contacted). This video seems to show a defender flopping, not a defender displaced by contact and therefore this could just as easily be a 'no-call' from the referee as the contact was incidental.

Incidental contact (26sec) example 2

Defense gets to position prior to final step of offensive player- thus, the contact is going to be a no call or an offensive foul (offensive foul if the offensive player then displaces/dislodges the defender).

No Call - On a Shot (40 sec)

This is a no-call because the defense is there. Restated - contact is legal if the defense is there first.

No Call - On a Shot (1 min) example 2

This could be a no-call as the contact is not creating a disadvantage and trained referees know that a foul requires three things: 1) illegal position with 2) contact and 3) a disadvantage created and as the ball goes in pretty easily in this video, it kind of makes the argument that there was not really a disadvantage created.

Block/Charge? (36 sec)

Defense gets to position prior to final step of offensive player- thus, the contact is going to be a no call or an offensive foul (offensive foul if the offensive player then displaces/dislodges the defender).

Block/Charge? (1 min) example 2

This looks like a good call (a defensive foul). Plus if you think about it- a defender really should be 'defending'- not setting up for flops. A defender is a player trying to legally impede an offensive player from scoring- but the guy in the video is not trying to prevent scoring as much as he is trying to 'work the referees'.

Various Examples of Foul Calls (6 minutes)

PortlandBasketball.Com encourages players and referees to watch this video. There are 10 explanations of fouls vs 'no calls' vs charges in this training video.

Law of Verticality (1 minute)

If defender gets "in front of" an offensive player prior to that offensive player's final step of his move/shot, than that defender is entitled to (law of verticality) to the space behind him and 'to the ceiling'; in other words the defender can jump straight up (but- proof of jumping straight up- is that defender landed close to the same spot on floor when coming down). Important- for safety- to understand this concept of jumping straight up as opposed to jumping outward.

Law of Verticality (6 minutes) explanation

All players in PortlandBasketball.com, for safety reasons, need to watch this video explanation of the law of verticality and how it relates to safety- thank you.
