Farmhouse Wins Basketball Championship
It was championship night for the Greek fraternity Intramural men’s basketball divisions at the University of Nebraska’s Campus Recreation Center on Sunday night. The teams were split into three divisions: red, white and black. White was the lowest bracket, black was the middle bracket and red was the highest bracket.
The main attraction of the night was in the red division with the Farmhouse Freshmen taking on their older fraternity brothers.
The Farmhouse “A” team jumped out to an early 17-7 lead before the Farmhouse Freshmen stormed back to cut the lead to 27-23 by halftime. The two teams would play a fast paced second half but two straight threes by Jason Line helped the “A” team go on a run after the Farmhouse Freshmen took their first lead of the game.
The “A” team would build their lead to 11 at 51-40 with just under three minutes to go. The Farmhouse Freshmen would not go away though, outscoring the “A” team 13-3 to end the game. However, a late tip in by Logan O’Connell gave the “A” team a one point lead with under 10 seconds left, and Tyson Burr’s long three pointer was off the mark giving the “A” team the division championship.
Tyson Burr led the Farmhouse Freshmen with 16 points, while Jason Line led the “A” Team with 13 points and four three pointers.
To start the night, the Betas took on Sigma Chi in the black division. The Betas held a 17-13 advantage at halftime before pulling away in the second half for 42-26 victory to win the black division.
In the white division, Delta Upsilon held off Pi Kappa Phi 48-46 to claim their title.
