Game three of eight, on Monday March 27 in the 2017 Metro League Championship was a face off between last year’s Metro League Champions: MCTC and North Hennepin Community College.

After the first period MCTC was down by over half and NHCC should have had an easy win in sight, but MCTC worked to close the margin and finished 48-56.

While they did not win, Coach Al Vann said, “They’re doing better every game, we are coming together.”
