The Titans began the road to perfection with a 76-48 victory over Tricentia in the tournament opener that featured a two-division format as Tyler Wise was picked his team’s player of the game.

The round-robin domination included a 90-47 win over Lewisporte with Brandon Bragg selected player of the game and a a 72-57 triumph over host Gander in the first showdown between the finalists.
