Tuesday night's battle was intense on both sides of the court for the Curtis Vikings and the Decatur Gators. A very close first half was fought that ended with Decatur up 25-24. The second half, however, was a different story. Decatur change their defensive scheme to zone coverage and forced Curtis to shoot from around the arch instead of within the paint. With 2 minutes left in the 4th quarter Curtis closed the lead to 6 points and looked to make a come back. Unfortunately for the Vikings there simply was not enought time. Decatur won 57-48 and increased to a 2 game lead for first place in the SPSL South Division.
