scored the next nine points to take a 13-6 lead.  The margin reached 12 at 
20-8 with 11 minutes left in the half, but the Old Gold whittled it back 
down to three at 24-21 on Brad Stevens' three-pointer with 6:15 left. 
Manchester responded with six straight to put the lead back into double 
digits. Ryan Miller and Ryan Hooker added buckets to bring the deficit 
back to six, but Manchester scored nine of the half's final 12 points to 
take a 40-28 halftime lead.
	The Tigers cut the second half lead to nine at 42-33 with 17:29 
left as Hooker completed a three-point play. The margin was still 10 at 
46-36 before the Spartans went on an 18-5 run to take their biggest lead 
of the contest, 64-41, with 9:49 left. During the stretch, Manchester's 
Burt Paddock scored 12 points including nine on three three-point field 
goals.
	Lyle Aulwurm scored the Spartans' last field goal with 7:31 left 
and the Tigers did manage to cut the lead to 10 in the closing minutes 
with a full-court press, but the Spartans still prevailed.
	Paddock finished with a game-high 26 followed by Chad Berry with 22 
and Brad Knoy with 10. Ryan Hooker led the Tigers with 13.
	The Tigers host Franklin at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday in the final
