We’ve officially found our TBT2017 Cinderella.

After knocking off No. 3 Ole Hotty Toddy yesterday, No. 14 NC Prodigal Sons punched their ticket to the Super 16 this afternoon, pulling out a tight win over No. 11 Golden Boot Dynasty.

NC led for 28:40 of the 36 minutes and their largest lead was 13, but Golden Boot wasn’t going to lay down easy. They chipped away at that 13-point lead to tie the game up with just minutes to play. Prodigal Sons didn’t make a field goal for the last 3:32 of play, but knocked down enough free throws to hang on for a 74-72 win.

Al’lonzo Coleman was big for NC, putting up a double-double of 17 points (7-8 FG) and 12 rebounds. Guard Damier Pitts was the high-scorer for NC with 21 points.
