9:43AM- Campers are finished with their stations and it’s time for some playoff basketball. Let’s see who stands up in crunch time. –@AndrewKoob

10:40AM- First set of playoff games are almost finished and we have our first playoff game in overtime. Drew Schankweiler corrals a missed shot and puts in the game-tying layup with less than five seconds to play in regulation. –@AndrewKoob

12:36PM-  Brian Downey with a nice steal on the inbound pass and lays in the first basket of the Semi-Finals. Plenty of basketball left to play today. –@JakerBaker58

12:45PM-  Marquis Johns with a great take to the hole for the bucket and the foul with just two seconds left in the first quarter! The competition is heating up today! –@JakerBaker58

1:02PM-  Drew Schankweiler gets fouled at the buzzer and hits both foul shots to give his team a double digit lead at the half. He and Marquis Johns have put their team up by 20 points now!-@JakerBaker58

1:15PM- In our other Semi Finals action, Curtis Jenkins has helped his team take a double digit lead. Ryan Durney and Alexander Mattina have also provided a great 1-2 punch that’s giving the defense plenty of trouble. But the combo of Chandler Benson and Marcus Baldwin has added solid scoring from the other side. Should be a tight finish this afternoon. –@JakerBaker58
