• NEW PRAGUE 81, RED WING 79 (OT): A 28-foot, heavily contested desperation heave from the Wingers' Joel Newman found its way into the basket to tie the score at the end of regulation, but the Trojans' free-throw prowess was the difference in overtime. New Prague's Luke Rynda hit six three-pointers, and Nick Johnson made four free throws in overtime. Newman led Red Wing with 24 points.
