In the championship game of the Co-Ed Intramural Basketball Tournament the Big Ballers defeated the DTAG Ballers 70-68, on a buzzer beating three-pointer by Matt Murray. The game went back and forth as Murray and Bryan Gallagher exchanged daggers from beyond the arc. Going into the half the Big Ballers, who worked their way out of the loser's bracket after losing their first game, led the DTAG Ballers by one, 30-29. In the waning minutes of the game, both teams went shot for shot with Videl Baez hitting two clutch three's bringing the Big Ballers within one point of the DTAG Ballers, setting the stage for Murray's game ender in the corner with 2.3 seconds remaining on the clock, off of an inbound pass following a defensive stop. Bryan Gallagher led all scorers with a game high 41 points and Matt Murray posted 39. The deciding game two is this Thursday at 12:10 PM.
