Game #9 - Championsip game featuring the unbeaten teams of Cass Lake and Red Lake 1. The game was good, and close throughout with the lead changing hands numerous times and big shots hit by both teams. In the end Cass Lake's dominance of the boards and their big man scoring 13 points got them the title 36-30!

It was a great day of basketball, for many kids this was their first experience at competitive basketball, I reffed at the Humanities all day so I didn't get to get much pictures, or get the B&G Club, but I heard it was a good day over there as well. Much thanks to all who volunteered with reffing, keeping score and also to those who brought their kids up to participate. We look forward to doing it all again in the very near future!
