By: TBT Staff



Marcellus Sommerville led all scorers with a game-high 17 points and #3 seed Always a Brave gave its raucous home crowd at the Renaissance Coliseum everything they could ask for in a 68-63 win over pesky #14 seed Mid American Unity. Always a Brave trailed by 5 points at half-time, but pulled it together in the second half to walk away with a win. They'll advance to the super sixteen round in Brooklyn.  Walt Lemon had 12 points in the win for the defending Midwest Region champions, who survived a back-and-forth affair that included five ties and eight lead changes. Mid America Unity more than held its own in its TBT debut. Richie Gordon (14 points), Jay Youngblood (12 points) and Jamil Dudley (11 points) all scored in double figures in the losing effort.
