If you had to choose a player from Team Takeovers roster that would be responsible for a clutch basket to win their quarterfinal game, names like VJ King and DJ Harvey would be at the top of the list, however against the PSA Cardinals, the script was changed a bit. Team Takeover guard Aaron Thompson (Paul VI/2017) rose to the occasion, converting a tough go ahead bucket in the final seconds to give Team Takeover a thrilling overtime win over the PSA Cardinals 58-56. It was a hard fought back an forth affair all game long as both teams left it all on the floor, although timely shots and relentless defense by Takeover turned out to be the difference in the game. VJ King led Takeover with 12 points and 4 rebounds while Tyler Scanlon finished with 10 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assist. Kassoum Yakwe paced PSA Cardinals with 16 points (8-10FG) and 10 rebounds.
