From Uniontown, Pennsylvania, in a game featuring two teams looking to end their season on a high-note after disappointing first-round performances, The Apprentice School Builders (Newport News, Virginia) defeated Victory University Men's Basketball team 81-70 in the Men's Division I consolation game at the USCAA Basketball National Championships.

Victory got off to a slow start early, shooting just 27% (10-37) from the field and 6.3% (1-16) from beyond the arc in a second-straight slow start that would ultimately prove too much to overcome.

The Apprentice School won the battle of the boards, edging Victory University 55-44 in total rebounds.

The seventh-seeded Eagles were led by USCAA All-American Keron Jackson, contributing 16 points and 13 rebounds. Sophomore Center Jordan Miles added 13 points and 8 rebounds.

"Once again we came out flat in the first half. The effort wasn't there and hasn't been for the past couple of games. We can't start to compete when we are down," said Head Coach Scott Robinson. "This is a great tournament and I hope we learned from the experience for future games."

The Eagles now look ahead and hope for a potential bid in the NCCAA tournament.
