Team Sheet, free.

Even though I arrived 20 minutes before the start, there were no team sheets left. This is always a problem when the women are scheduled to play beforehand and their team line up is printed on the back of the same sheet as the men’s. In fact, I only saw three people with them, so perhaps there weren’t many printed ? Luckily, someone had left one on their seat at the end of the game, which although creased, was good enough to be put in a drawer when I got home, unlikely to ever see the light of day again !

Tyler led 42-36 at the break with a 9-0 points run to end the half. It was 71-71 with under two minutes remaining  and 73-73 with just 23.9 seconds left. Skyler Hadden and Melvin Anthony top scored for Tyler with 14 points each, the latter scoring 8 from 9 free throws. Braden Hammond led the way for the visitors with 21 points.
