     LSH 21    21  -   42
     TCU 27    28  -   55
The Titans had some great scoring balance in the win, with only one player in double figures, but six others hitting between five and nine points.
TCU led by six (27-21) at the half and expanded the lead to 13 in the second, but the Giants looked to close the gap, trailing by only 49-42 with three minutes left. The Titans went back to work and settled for the 13-point win at the final buzzer.
Jordan Trnka led the scoring with 10 points, but he had ample support from his teammates — Pat Lloyd (9), Andrew Feddema and Alex Turgeon (8), Charlie Simonette (7), Aaron Dwyer (6) and Jamison Beulke (5). Ryan Iverson completed the scoring with two points.
The Giants were led by Ty O’Brien with 12 points, followed by Matt Rinehart, 11.
