The 5:10pm games continued to carry the intensity from the first hour of games. Lots of action could be seen as far as the eye could see as shoes squeaked and cheering could be heard throughout the complex. More and more fans are appearing the upper level observation areas, which give everyone a great bird’s eye view of the action.
In the Men’s Intramural Division, North Carolina A&T, a perennial competitor in the Series, came out strong and gained a huge first win. They defeated Missouri S&T by a score of 79-34. A&T’s Clayvon Croom was HUNGRY for stats, picking up 24 points, 8 rebounds, 2 assists, and 1 block for the winning team.
In the Women’s Club Division, the University of Virginia, perhaps motivated by their men’s varsity counterpart winning their NCAA Tournament, came away with a huge victory to give them a 1-0 start.
