BIBLE COLLEGE NIT
NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP GAME – A tournament that was basically all chalk came to a close in the expected way – with the top seeded TRINITY BAPTIST COLLEGE EAGLES facing the 2 seeds – the BLUE LIGHTS COLLEGE OF APEX THOROUGHBREDS. The game was a real thriller, but in the end the Eagles outdid the Thoroughbreds for an 84-76 victory. * THE EAGLES ARE BIBLE COLLEGE NIT CHAMPIONS *

Savion Staton led Sandhills College in scoring with 16 points.
SECOND SEMIFINAL – This game pitted the 2nd seeded MOHAWK VALLEY COLLEGE HAWKS (should be the Mohawks) against the 3 seeds – the EASTFIELD COLLEGE HARVESTERS.
