DUNLAP â€” It was not a thing of beauty, but Concordâ€™s Minutemen will take the win as they come away with an NLC home overtime victory over Plymouth by a final of 50-42.
It was a battle of big-time college recruits with Concordâ€™s Franko House â€” headed for Ball State University â€” squaring off against Plymouthâ€™s Mack Mercer, and statistically the match favored House, who had 17 points and 10 rebounds. However House was matched up most of the night with one Plymouth defender â€”Kyser McCrammer â€” while Mercer spent much of the night triple-teamed by various Concord defenders.
