The Griffith college male/female team were both off to a winning streak. They had won a fashionable 4 out of 4 games altogether.

Unfortunately, things did not remain the same on day 2 for Griffith. They had a huge defeat to Trinity.  They also had a tight game with UL in the morning with the score to UL 66-64 GCD.

Overall, Trinity kept up their pace, shot some amazing baskets and had some great tactics to get their win. You could clearly see that Griffiths dribbling drills were on point but there were far too many missed shots which lead to their downfall. If they didn’t miss these it would’ve been a very tight game.

Shannon Brady really racked the points up their rebounds were all successful and it was in Trinity favour for the very start to win the game as their score racked up immensely from the very first quarter.

This meant Griffith was out of the finals. Their American scholar player made a huge impact with 21 points. Their MVP winner was later announced was Shannon Brady got a whopping 35 points.
