Video Highlights: 

The first game of the day featuring 3 Headed Monsters and Power was a battle of two returning playoff teams.

Despite Jeremy Pargo’s 18 points and Corey Maggette’s retirement, Power found themselves trailing for most of the game. 3 Headed Monsters implemented a balanced offensive attack which started with Mario Chalmers hitting two four-point shots early in the game. Four 3 Headed Monsters ended the game in double figures and the newly acquired Rodney Carney was a big difference maker in the game scoring 11 points.

3 Headed Monsters held the lead and never let up. Late in the game there were a couple of moments where Power could have made a comeback. But, it was too little, too late and 3 Headed Monsters ended up taking the victory finishing 3rd in the league once again.

During halftime, Corey Maggette announced his retirement from the BIG3. A three season veteran, Maggette was recognized by the BIG3 for his work with the league and the community.
