OAKLAND,CA-Day 3 of the HIGHLY COMPETITIVE Nike EYBL Session IV was the day that teams started to see and realize what their fate just might be as the play on the court INTENSIFIED. Without further delay, let's get to the action
ATHLETE FIRST (OK) (57) BLUFF CITY LEGENDS (TN) 62
After getting of to a fast start, ATHLETES FIRST looked as if they would come away with the win, that was until BLUFF CITY LEGENDS class of 2013, 6'7 (F) Nicholas King "went to work" running of 4 straight crucial buckets that put things out of reach as BLUFF CITY LEGENDS would come away with a 5 point, 62-57 victory.
