With the scores still close in the 1.51 mark, forward Justin Medina came up with a big steal with resulted in an uncontested layup for Patrick Scipio as MBA pulled away 35-31. As the battle continued Team Legacy offense was shut down with some aggressive half court man to man defense by MBA.

In the closing 10 seconds Augustine scored a dunk off a missed shot to increase the lead 37-31. Next possession MBA forced a turnover and Medina scored a three point play, a layup & free shot, to end the contest.
