Just Two Spots in TBT2017 Remain After Broad Street Knocks Out Primetime NYC

The West regional of TBT2017 is officially set, as Broad Street Brawlers took down Primetime NYC 77-68 at Philadelphia University on Sunday afternoon.  

It was a back-and-forth first half that resulted in Primetime heading to the locker leading 37-36. But BSB got going in the second half, shooting 50% from the field (14-28) and connecting on an even better clip from behind the arc – 55.6% (5-9).

For the second straight game, former Philly U player Christian Burns looked very comfortable on his old home court. The 6’8” power forward was a beast for BSB, going for a game-high 22 points (8-11) and nine rebounds. Former West Virginia sharpshooter Dalton Pepper hit four threes (19 points total) and Samme Givens added a double-double with 10 points and 11 boards.

Jesse Jones has a great game for NYC. He led the team with 19 points and shot 70% from the field (7-10) – including going 5-7 from 3PT land. Gary Ervin was another bright spot for NYC, chipping in 16 points and six rebounds.

With so much talent in the West regional of TBT2017, the Brawlers are going to have to channel their own team name if they want to make a run in a regional that will be a serious grind.
