Intramural Basketball 1997 finally came to a close Wednesday night in the Supertents as the Nuts defeated the Fury, 58-45, in the championship game.

“In the previous game we didn’t play too well,” said Nuts coach Matt Durant. “We knew this was the game to win, we were much more athletic.”

The Nuts consisted of seniors Carl Caston and Fred Coffee, juniors Durant, Brian Zavala, Ryan Hawkins, Tamara Loyd, Ivan Battle and Gabe Duran.

Senior Mike Whipple, juniors Dale Schroeder and Katie Dooling, sophomores Mike Miller, Jennifer Spring and Sergio Paredes, and freshman Landus Rigsby made up the Fury squad.

The advantage was established early by the Nuts, who went into halftime with a 12 point lead, 32-20. The Nuts were relentless, with Hawkins putting on a three-point clinic, scoring 27 points en route to a 58-45 victory.

“Congratulations to the Nuts, especially Hawkins,” said Fury coach Paredes. “We had a great team and went undefeated, but went up against a great team in the championship. At least we made it to the championship game.”

Senior Andy Moran, intramural coordinator, was proud of the outcome of this year’s competition.

“I’m happy with the turnout, it was the largest crowd ever. There were 100 participants this year and I only see it getting better,” said Moran.
