The Undefeated Champs!!! Yelled a fan after the game. Tonight was once again another tough fight and a glaring signal the defending champs are not holding back. With their third game in as much as four nightss, Pythons were still able to pull off the W against Bushrod Bulls.

What many thought would be an easier W then that of Pistons was in for a surprise. Both sides started the first quarter in a slow pace. A quick time out within the first two minutes by Bushrod Bulls saw their style change. They came out of the time out with a 2-2-1 full court press. Pythons was ready for that!
