The Merchants won their third game in a row Sunday, again against a much taller opponent with a thrilling 59-58 final. Trailing at the half, 27-25, Busco found themselves down 39-30 early in the second half before they started pecking away at the lead. But a turnover with 15 seconds left gave the ball back to the Ft. Wayne Metal team with a chance for a game winning shot, a missed shot and two rebound attempts. All went ajar as the Merchants held on to the victory.
