Once again both clubs went toe-to-toe.  Trailing 57-55 and the game clock under a minute, Canaan delivered a super pass inside to Tevin Powe.  His bucket tied the game.

Both the Rams and Indians had a chance to win the game in regulation but came up empty.

Canaan and company would rule the four minute overtime period outscoring the Rams 11 to 6.
