Sofia Lluch also had 12 points, 5 assists, and 6 rebounds. Thunderwolf Leashja Grant did not play in today’s game due to injury.

“Great team effort today. We really came out strong and sustained that energy for 40 minutes. It is really good to see us getting better on defense and it is good to know without Leashja in the line up we can play a different style and be successful.”- Coach Jon Kreiner

Today’s win named the Thunderwolves the BOB FM Tournament Champion for the second year in a row with Nikki Ylagan being named tournament MVP and Leashja Grant being named an all-star.
