With yesterday's win on the books, NDFA now faced #26 Sideline Cancer in the Sweet 16. With a similar attack from the previous game, the Alumni shot 18-42 overall but 11-23 from 3. Today, Chris Thomas took Ayers spot by going 5-6 from three. Paul Gause (of Seton Hall) led all scorers with 17 points. The team was quickly showing they did not mind sharing the ball and having a different star each game.
