In game two, CR-B avenged a 24-point setback to CO-U earlier this season in a 49-46 triumph over the host Bobcats.

With Friday’s seven-point win, CO-U moved to 6-3 in the Rolling Valley Conference and 7-5 overall.

The contest was tied at 16-16 at halftime, but CO-U outscored CR-B 18-9 in the third quarter to take a 34-25 lead into the fourth.

"We took advantage of every free throw opportunity, as we went eight of nine from the line," he added.
