The Titan cagers, like they have done several times during the season, stayed close to the Tigers in the first half, but were no match in the second session before losing by 24 points.
Shooting success was again the story of the game, with the Titans completing only 12-of-50 field goals, or 24%; and 2-of-21 from 3-point range, or 9%. Free throw shooting was much better, with 18-for-24 or 75%.
The Tigers, meanwhile, hit the nets with better success, shooting 51% on 24-for-47 at field goals and 33% from long range on 4-of-12. They were not as accurate at the free throw line, hitting only 16-of-26 for 61%.
Leading scorers for the Titans were Alex Turgeon with 13 points, Jordan Trnka 10 and Pat Lloyd seven. Turgeon also led the team in rebounds with five boards.
Belle Plaine had balanced scoring from Alec Koepp with 15 points, Aaron Bigaouette 14, Jack Winders 12 and Luke Narveson nine. Narveson also dominated the boards with 10 rebounds.
