BIG3 League Basketball – Los Angeles – GAME 1 Power (4-4) 42 vs. Tri-State (3-5) 51

Coming into Week 8, the 2-5 Tri-State’s playoff berth hopes remained alive, if slim, as a win over Power plus a loss by 3’s Company and a loss by Ghost Ballers would have secured the 4-seed. Meanwhile, Power entered the game having already clinched a playoff berth, fighting for a 3-seed with a win over Tri-State or a loss by 3’s Company.

Tri-State opened the game strong, but quickly fell behind to Power, at one point trailing 18-10. Down most of the first half, Mike James led the team on a dominant run that resulted in a 25-20 lead at halftime, and a lead that Tri-State would never relinquish throughout the 2nd half. Trailing 49-42, Power’s Cuttino Mobley faced tight defense and threw up an air ball that was rebounded by Tri-State’s Bonzi Wells who swiftly put in the game winning lay up.

Led by James’ 17 points on 3 of 7 shooting from behind the 3 point arc, Dominic McGuire’s 10 points and 5 rebounds, and Wells’ 8 points and 8 boards, Tri-State kept their playoff hopes alive with a 51-42 win over Power (still needing a loss by 3’s Company and a loss by Ghost Ballers later in the day). DeShawn Stevenson contributed a solid performance for Power, knocking down what would prove to be the day’s league-leading 22 points on 50% (6 of 12) shooting from the 3-point line.

Power (4-4) moves on to the playoffs as the 3-seed.
