But in the 4th quarter when oaks were down as much as 15, Michael Tomson scored 15 of his 25 points after sitting most of the first half in foul trouble. With the win by oaks tonight, they have guaranteed the 1 seed in NVBL playoffs starting next week. Both teams came in to the game undefeated and looking unbeatable.
