ST PAUL, MN – Denver started this game strong, and took full advantage of Bay Area’s tendency to get off to a slow start. Earning the first three lead calls, Denver opened up an early lead and relied on smart call offs to keep Bay Area off the scoreboard during those jams. After Bay Area took the lead, Denver was never able to reclaim it. Once Bay Area’s wall solidified its ground, their offense – something BAD has honed all season long – came to life as well.
Ultimately, despite a loss to Denver earlier this season, a combination of solid defense and well timed offense allowed Bay Area to pull ahead and take the win, 179-148 over Denver.
