In the previous meeting this year, Bransford posted a 23-point, 13-rebound double-double, while Hobbs hit a game-winning bucket with 3.2 seconds on the clock to secure the Quincy Holiday Classic for NSU. The Bulldogs trailed by nine at the half but took a 65-64 lead with 5:47 to play and led 71-68 with 1:50 on the clock before NSU came from behind to win.
