Trailing by eight heading into the third, the South Park erupted for 20 points in the quarter to tie the game up at 40.

Down four in the final minutes of action, former Super 7 Athlete of the Week Shakur Harris hit a three, helped steal the ensuing inbounds for another Sparks' bucket to put South Park up 52-51.
