The first game of the night was with TTE from Nashville Tennessee vs Lancaster Thunder from Lancaster, Ohio. The 1st half was definitely a half of strong defensive play as we went into halftime 48-45 TTE. The second half brought change as TTE began to slowly pull away from the Thunder but not easily as Sean Rogers and Brett McKnight from the Thunder just kept coming dropping 31 points each. TTE pulled this one out 111-96 to advance to the National Championship game. George Stanberry led TTE with 42 Points.

The Final game of the night was the defending champions Columbus Ga Vipers taking on a very scrappy Mississippi Raptors team. This game was nothing short of a nail biter as it went into overtime. The Raptors were not going to be defeated easy as they gave the Vipers everything they had until the final buzzer. It was the Vipers in the end pulling off a 122-118 victory in overtime to advance to the National Championship game for the 3rd season straight. The Vipers were led by Cortez Chaney with 30 points. Cam Paulding dropped 21 points followed close behind by Alquan Mendenhall with 20 points. For the Raptors it was Stephon Thomas with 51 points and Denzel McDuffey with 39 points.
