The Tigers played a very tough Kuyper College team winning 70-57. “This is not the same team we played earlier in the year,” said Coach Bailey. They were well prepared for us and played us very well. I have said all along that our region continues to get better and better. It’s encouraging to see the growth of the Midwest Region.”
