On the men’s side, Northeast was knotted at 33-all at the break against the Lions however, poor second half shooting from the floor, and from the foul line, proved to be too much to overcome down the stretch for the Tigers.

The Tigers’ rally effort in the second half fell short mainly due to off the mark free throws where they only hit 8-of-17 shots from the charity stripe.
