5. Motown Muscle

Division: Anthony
Manager: Del Ballard Jr.
Roster: EJ Tackett, Anthony Simonsen, Josh Blanchard, Mitch Hupé, Matt McNiel

EJ Tackett and Anthony Simonsen have 20 PBA Tour titles between them, including four majors, and they’re barely a combined 50 years old. Josh Blanchard and new teammate Mitch Hupé are both reliable players who rarely make big mistakes. Matt McNiel, also averse to big errors but on the other side of the lane, will relish his opportunity to make his second career appearance in the PBA League. This might be the year Motown, with its always-impressive-on-paper-if-not-quite-as-much-on-the-lanes roster, finally contends for the Elias Cup.
