The Tiger boys jumped to an 18 to 9 lead in the first quarter. However, the Broncos battled back in the second period and cut the Tigers lead to just 4-points by half time at 28-24.
DCS turned their defensive intensity up to start the third quarter and pushed the lead to double digits, DCS outscored the Broncos 19 to 11 in the period and led 47 to 35 at the end of the third quarter. The Tigers continued to build their lead in the fourth quarter, and pulled away for the 70 to 46 win.
