The 412th Security Forces Squadron recently claimed the 2013 Intramural Basketball Championship March 7 at the Rosburg Fitness Center with back-to-back games over the first-place seeded team, the 412th Force Support Squadron.

After initially losing to the 412th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron in the first round of the playoffs, the 412th SFS team had to work their way back up through the loser’s bracket in order to contend for a chance at the intramural basketball title.

At the start of the first game, the SFS jumped out early establishing a 25-15 lead at mid-point of the first half. The SFS maintained the lead and led 39-32 at halftime. With the start of the second half, the SFS led with a 12-7 run to lead 51-39 with 15 minutes remaining. However, the FSS fought back with a 13-6 run of their own to cut the deficit to 5 points at 57-52 with 6 minutes left. At the 2 minute mark, the SFS still led by 5 points which left the score at 63-58. With free throws down the stretch, it closed out the first game with a 69-61 win for the SFS.

With the SFS win, this forced a double elimination game with the FSS since it was their first loss in the playoff bracket.

In the start of the final elimination game, the FSS led early with 14-8 after 5 minutes of game play. After 8 minutes into the game and both teams were tied at 16-16, and then 24-24 with under 3 minutes. The teams were knotted up at 29-29 at the half.

With 15 minutes remaining in the second half, both the SFS and the FSS were still tied 37-37. The FSS then led 41-40 within 10 minutes left. After the SFS went on a 12-2 run to lead 52-43 with 5 minutes left, the FSS team was able to reduce the SFS lead by 6 points, thus trailing 51-57 with a minute left. A couple of free throws down the stretch once again iced the SFS victory with a final score of 65-57.
