FORT WAYNE, IN — The final game of Saturday playoff action in Fort Wayne found 7th seed Wasatch going up against 3rd seed Arch Rival in a game to determine who’d advance to the 5th place game against Rose City on Sunday. While Wasatch trailed for all but a few seconds of the bout, they seemed to be one or two big jams away from the lead for nearly the whole game. Arch Rival’s hard-nosed defense — and some hard-to-handle jamming from Brickyard — refused to ever let those one or two jams happen, though, and Arch Rival finally pulled away for good in the last 7 minutes to win solidly, 235-154.
