In the Green team’s first game of the season, things were very sloppy, and they struggled to make much happen on the offensive side of the floor. The game went back and forth in the end, with regulation ending tied at 14.
During overtime, Arete was able to make things happen. Overtime started with a tip by Emery right to Hampton with the go-ahead layup. From there, the strong defense of Hampton, Oh, and Emery in the backcourt caused Horizon trouble. Emery made a free throw after being fouled that gave Arete a three-point lead. Bateman secured the victory with a jump shot from the right elbow, giving Arete a five-point lead with less than 20 seconds left.
