THE BASICS

HOW IT HAPPENED

  • The Yellow Jackets were on fire from three point range for much of the night

  • R-MC went up 52-38 with 13 minutes remaining, but the Tigers scored five quick ones to trim the deficit to nine and force a Macon timeout
  • The visitors built the lead up to 16, 65-49, at 5:38, but the Tigers chipped away at the lead to trail only nine at 3:29
  • With a chance to make it a two-possession game with just under two minutes to play, a Kevin Quinn three pointer rolled in and out.

  • From there, Macon was able to close out the game with strong defense
