Texas Fold 'Em

30 Jan 2022

Texas led Tennessee 49-32 with just under 8:00 to play. Then things got interesting.  The Volunteers closed on a 19-3 run and tied the game, holding the Longhorns to just a layup and a free throw the rest of the way. Unfortunately for the Vols, the FT by Timmy Allen was the difference, Texas winning 52-51 when Josiah-Jordan James missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer. Unfortunately for Longhorns betters, Texas blew a huge lead and Tennessee (+2) covered against the spread.

On the GridCard, mac (42) stayed red hot, mac's second TallBoy of the year earning him a second King of the Mountain. Just five other players posted Qualifying Scores: Winky (34), Jodyann (33), BabyMac (29), Jkloo (29), and Barry (29).

In a battle of two first-place GridCard Teams, Jodyann (33) led Team Collins over the PGT 98-81. VBar crushed Team Mac 141-94 behind (ironically) mac (42). And in the first-ever contest decided by the second tie-breaker, the OG Gridders beat Team Detwiler (98-98) when their fifth player Zeke (21) edged KDet047 (20).
