In a game that felt as though it would last forever, the drama that had built up between the Tigers and Meteors seemed to increase as the game wore on. Unfortunately for the Tigers, the drama didn’t last long enough.

The Tigers came into the game looking to rebound from a 75-66 loss to a tough Riverside team last Wednesday, and wasted no time taking control early, en route to a 17-13 first quarter lead.
