Thursday, March 29, was the final day of the Zaching Against Cancer March Madness Basketball Tournament, when the championship game was held.

The Steezmen battled Vyatautus for the title. This was a very close game, with both teams scoring back and forth. By the end of regulation, it was tied 8-8.

Overtime began with a quick two points from The Steezmen, but with clutch 3s from senior Sean Taylor, Vyatautus stayed within reach. Vyatautus took advantage of its second opportunity to win and hit the ground running. A nice lay-up from senior Michael Pellegrini and deep two-pointer from freshman Shane Taylor put Vyatautus up 12-10. Both teams scored only one other point. The game finished with Vyatautus on top, 13-11.

This year’s ZAC Tournament was yet again a well attended and meaningful Centennial event.
