In a thrilling game, the Jackson TN Underdawgs upset #1 seeded Gael Force 59-50.  Lead by Tarius Johnson and Jaylen Barford, who scored 18 and 13 respectively.  This is not the first time the Underdawgs have upset the top seed in their region.  Back in 2016, Jackson upset the Bluegrass Boys as a 16 seed.  Despite not hitting a three the entire game, they were lead by a strong second half to stretch out their lead and eventually bring it home.  Gael Force struggled shooting from the field, but were led by Joseph Rahon and Omar Samhan who both scored 12 points.
