television. The opening round, aired live on ESPN, featured clutch 10th-frame strikes from STyLES franchise player and anchor Sean Rash in the fi nale. The STyLES are owned by actor Jesse Williams of Grey’s Anatomy. In round two, Tommy Jones, Pete Weber
and Scott Norton delivered consecutive strikes to lead Billie Jean King’s KingPins to a 222-198 win over comedian Kevin Hart’s Philadelphia Hitmen. The STyLES reached the fi nal match
again in round three, but fell to football legend Jerome Bettis’ Motown Muscle, 195- 193, when Norton, needing a strike for the win, left a 3 pin. “The team experience is exciting and
fun,” said Rash, who anchored national championship squads at Wichita State Uni- versity. “Team members all watch the balls go down the lane, and you get information
from the entire lineup. In the end, though, you still have to bowl well individually to help the team.” Two rounds remain in the inaugural PBAL season, with the top four teams ad- vancing to the Elias Cup fi nals, which will be held in Indianapolis, March 31. The fi nals will air on ESPN Sunday, April 7.
