Stars and Stripes Classic fun for everyone   View the Photo Gallery

The second night consolation game of the Stars and Stripes Classic ended in a 91-91 tie. Team Mirabito Energy head coach Matt Osborne righted the ship after Tuesday’s loss. “I told them to relax a lit bit and have fun. I thought we were a little tight, we didn't shoot the ball very well in the first game. We shot the ball a lot better tonight,” said Osborne.



Norwich’s Michael Sutton, fresh off of being named Section IV Class B Player of the Year, had two points. Sutton is humbled by the award and by the officials selection of him for the tournament.

“It means a lot. It means that other people besides just your own team and your owns fans, the officials notice your sportsmanship and they notice how well you play,” said Sutton. He is modest and thankful to his team and coaches for the award. “I wouldn’t have done it with out my team. It feels great. Tom Collier and Brian Collier did it for me. I wouldn’t be Class B Player of the Year without them,” said Sutton.
