A mid-game scuffle. A big lead that almost vanished during the Elam Ending. A foul shot to win it. In a game that had a little bit of everything, Boeheim’s Army hung on to defeat pesky Armored Athlete 73-69.

 

Hakim Warrick hit a foul shot to reach the Target Score, sending Boeheim’s Army to their second-straight TBT quarterfinals.

 

“We made the plays we needed to,” said Boeheim’s Army coach Ryan Blackwell.

 

Eric Devendorf led all scorers with 19 points for the Syracuse University alumni squad, which matched Armored Athlete’s competitiveness level throughout a physical contest.

 

“It was just a competitive game,” said Devendorf.

 

Arinze Onuaku added 18 points on 8-for-9 shooting for the victors, who opened the second half on 13-2 run.

 

Stefan Moody led the way with 16 points in just 18 minutes for Armored Athlete, which could not recover after being outscored, 20-11, in the third quarter.
