The GBC Tigers advanced to the NCCAA II Midwest Regional finals with a 85-75 win over rival Northland Bible College. Grace was led in scoring by Jimmy Booth with 19 but again had a very even scorebook. mike Boone had 12, Dan Hosteter and Dan Dame 11. Paul Nelson added 5 assists. ” I told Coach Wehry (Northland) after the game that I would have to wait ten minutes after the game to celebrate the victory because his kids don’t ever stop playing until they are in the locker room” said Coach Gary Bailey. “Northland’s players just never give up and that is why we have had some great games over the years. They are a class act every year.”
Grace will take on Maranatha, a 71-70 winner over #1 seed Kuyper College, in the finals at 2:00pm on Saturday.
