The game was a tale of two halves as GBC scored 67 second half points compared to Kuypers 40. The Cougars went into the locker room with a 36-32 lead as they connected on 50% of their attempts. “This Kuyper team doesn’t get the respect that they deserve when you look at their record,” said Coach Gary Bailey. “They can really play and they took it to us in the first half. We came out in the second half and played more like we are capable.”
Allen Durham led Grace with 20 points and 10 rebounds. Cory Jamieson scored 19 and 5 rebounds. Dan Dame scored 11 points and dished out 4 assists after picking up four fouls in the first half. The Tigers outrebounded the Cougars 39-26.
