DULUTH, MN–Suburbia and Treasure Valley matched up for the second time this weekend. They both won 2 and lost 1 to wind up battling for 5th place. It started as a very back and forth game after Suburbia got four power jams, but after the initial stages they struggled against the solid blocking of Treasure Valley. Treasure Valley’s stranglehold on the game got tighter and tighter as it progressed–and the Idaho team ended up improving on their day-one margin by 100 points, 236-111.

DULUTH, MN–Game two of the Duluth Division 2 playoff was contested by two teams who debuted at D2 playoffs last year: Idaho’s Treasure Valley and New York’s Suburbia. Treasure Valley again came into playoffs under-ranked–but this year it was mostly because of playing teams in the upper echelons of D1 and taking heavy losses, rather than only getting match-ups with teams further down. Suburbia looked for a while like they might manage to eke out an upset and even held a half-time lead–but Treasure Valley took the win 129-109.
