The Blue Streaks (17-8) started the game hot with a 7-0 spurt and built a sizeable cushion with a 17-10 3rd quarter run to hold off a late Tygers comeback. Da'Quan Hilory paced Mansfield with a game-high 20 pts with BJ Patrick adding a dozen in his final game wearing a Tygers uniform. First-year head coach Marquis Sykes was pleased with the improvement of his squad that won just 6 games a season ago, stating that "Tyger basketball is back" after finishing the season at 16-8.
