In game one, Chris Wright exploded for a game high 20 points.

Matt Harasme would add 11 points for BC, who will face M'Town's Finest on Friday in a game that will decide first place in the division. Coast to coast was led by Xavier Mayo with 10 points.
In the second game the Eagles would get off to a fast start, leading the Newburgh Panthers-Jenkins by as much as 17 points. In response to their lack luster start, the Panthers would make a concerted effort to get the ball inside to their big men, Kiev Xxxxx and Jaden Xxxxx, who scored 19 and 14 points respectively. The Panthers would eventually take the lead and when BC's Matt Harasme (15 points) fouled out, it seemed as though the Panthers would come away with the win. However, Tommy Garneau (15 points) and Hakeem Xxxxx (13 points) would step up for the Eagles. Hakeem would score 10 points late in the second half, including two big 3-pointers and Garneau would finish off the Panthers with four straight free throws with his team hanging on to a 2-point lead.
