With a chance to go to the championship, DME and Link Year battled it out in the second game of the night to decide the championship matchup against TSF.  This one was pretty close all throughout, with neither team really being able to create a comfortable cushion.  DME was led by four players that scored five points each, including one of their leaders in Jermontae Hill who was coming off a great Day 1.  Link Year Prep also had a balanced attack with eight different players getting in the scoring column, led by Coban Porter with eight early points; it helped them gain a narrow 31-25 lead.

Second half wasn’t much different, but Nelson started to come on strong, scoring 16 of his 21 points in the second half and being aggressive on the court, scoring in multiple ways.  Link Year did a nice job in getting to the line and capitalizing there, notching 13 points in the second half from the line. Back and forth they went but, in the end,, Link Year Prep was able to create that small separation late, leading by five in the final seconds, which included a couple of big baskets.  Nelson hit a three to cut it within two but the buzzer sounded shortly after, as Link Year secured their date with TSF with a 65-63 victory.
