Riverside wanted this. They scored first and held the lead for 32 minutes. They did not lose it until when Indiana scored to make it 42-41 in the overtime. Indiana showed "never say die" attitude as they kept coming back and tied it at the buzzer. It was a game of lots of patience, aggressive defense and perhaps too many three-point attempts. Riverside certainly did a brilliant job containing Cody Crace by implementing tight defense in the paint.  It was 27-24 at the end of third quarter as it was continuous defensive battle with both teams combining to score only 11 points. Riverside, behind Noah Valencia, took a 38-32 lead but Indiana never gave up. In the waning minutes of the regulation, each teams were being carefully taking timeouts to kill momentum. Riverside missed a number of free throws that could have sent game away. On the final possession of the game, Riverside's defense fell apart that left a huge hole to the hoop for Indiana as they tied the game at 41-41. It was overtime and Indiana finally got the lead at 3 minute mark with 42-41 margin. In the last seconds, Riverside could have finished the game but blew it due to five-second violation penalty but on the other side, Crace committed an offensive foul. Riverside had the last possession but they did not prevail. The final score was 47-45. Crace led with 15 points, nine coming in the second half and overtime, and 8 rebounds. Valencia and Omar Alzen scored 11 and 12 points respectively for Riverside.

Maryland ran out of the gates with a 9-2 lead by 5:00 mark in first quarter but all of the sudden went cold after 3:00 mark. The margin was 11-6. Fremont went ahead very slowly through the halftime (19-11) and were up by 13, 24-11 in third quarter before Mia Goldberg got on the board for Maryland. It ended a 18-0 run for Fremont. All of the sudden it was Tarja and Tessa Lewis show as Maryland went up to 34-29 in the fourth (through 23-5 run). However,  Tessa made a crucial mistake and got technical then fouled out. Adele Daniels of Fremont took the advantage and shot all of her six free throws in the process to win, 41-37. Tarja and Tessa Lewis scored 15 and 11 respectively for Maryland. Daniels dominated the paint with 20 points and 7 rebounds to pace Fremont. 

Showing how much they want this third place, Fremont brought a lot of energy to the game compared to Texas. going up by 10, 18-7 midway in the 2nd quarter.  Fremont, like Riverside, was doing a brilliant job containing Dalton Etkie (7 points) and putting him on bench due to three fouls before halftime and continuing to do so the rest of game. A person mentioned to me that Fremont does indeed have more threats than Texas. It was showing as they led 27-15 at the half. Fremont decided to give full-court press a try and they succeeded completely as they went up by 17 from 8 (31-23) with a 40-23 margin before final quarter. Biggest lead was 26, 55-29. Fremont cruised to victory, 61-36. Trace Martin scored 19 to power Fremont. Elonzo Arellano scored 9 in a balanced team scoring in a losing effort.

Texas continued their shooting woes that costed them a trip to the title game last night as Indiana went up 5-0. However, Texas tied it at 10, thanks to their full-court press that caused multiple mistakes made by Indiana. It was all Indiana for few minutes then Texas went on a 16-4 run to lead it 28-20 at one point in the third quarter. Once indiana finally tied it after a run, it was the game of ties. It ended up going into overtime, thanks to Giuletta Maucere's game-tying buzzer beater jump shot, making it to be 36-36.  It was all physical and very evenly matched. Indiana eks out with a 44-40 victory to win third place. Giuletta Maucere contributed 16 points, 6 boards and 5 blocks for Indiana including four clutch points in fourth quarter and overtime. Britta Schwall added 14 points and 4 steals for Indiana. Kylene Etkie led Texas with 10 points, 5 assists and 8 rebounds. Gunita Schmidjorg recorded 12 points for Texas.

Riverside opened the game fast and never looked back as they went on to win the game 39-19 over Model. Alana Smith led Riverside with 19 points and Alexandra Muller chipped in 10 points. Idy Fass led Model with 5 points while having everybody contributing in the losing effort.

For second straight day, Model opened the game with energized play to lead it 26-8 at the half. It continues as it reached 24 points in the third with 32-8 margin. Learning Center came back to get it under 20 for one possession but Model defied the rally by going up by 33, 54-21 in late fourth. The final score was 64-27. Matthew Velez scores 12 for Learning Center. Balanced scoring with four players in double-digits for Model - Lauderbaugh (10), Arnes (11), Edwards (16), and Shirley (12) powered to a rout victory.
