I’m Fiesta-watching and doing this — be still, my beating heart!!
It’s 33-32 FHSU with just under two minutes left in first half and guess what? Dominique Jones has 16 points for Tigers already. But Sanijay Watts has 17 for UCM.
Jumper from Alex Moosman gave Mules a 34-33 lead at halftime.
Second half underway — UCM has pushed its lead to 46-40 five minutes in.
Uh-oh … UCM pushes lead to 53-43 at 12:00 mark … and Watts has 23 with Jones still stuck on 16 …
And FHSU JUST STORMED BACK and took a 63-60 lead with seven minutes to play. Whoa. Dominique Jones has 24 now with Corbin Kuntzsch and Ken Bowman sitting on 10 each. That’s the difference. This is a lot of fun, actually.
FHSU up 70-64 with four minutes left — Willie Hassel is the fourth Tiger in double digits with 11. This could really happen. And without their best player.
FHSU 74-69 with two minutes left … Jones has 26 points, 7 assists and 5 boards. Watts stuck on 23. Yeah this might happen.
FHSU up 76-69 with one minute left.
FINAL: NO. 13 FHSU 81, No. 1 CMU 71 at Warrensburg, Mo. WOW WOW DOUBLE WOW AND ON THAT NOTE …
