MONTRÉAL, QC – #8 Sun State (overall rank #29) overtook #7 Kallio (overall rank #27) in a closely matched game for 9th place.

They were not able to shut down Sun State however, even after they made some adjustments to their offensive approach. Sun State powered through the last half and came away with an emotional win, 155-148 for 9th place at the 2016 D1 International WFTDA Playoffs in Montréal.
