No. 12 Adrian defeats Defiance in P&G championship


A back-and-forth 38th-Annual Purple and Gold Financial Tournament barnburner had it all on Sunday night at Defiance College's Karl H. Weaner Center. When all the excitement ended, Brooklyn, N.Y. native and 12th-ranked Adrian College senior Brandon Romain delivered the biggest play of the night with 1.3 seconds left in overtime. The 6-4, 170-pounder's layup on an in-bounds play under the bucket finally dealt the knockout blow in a heavyweight battle, giving the unbeaten Bulldogs a 70-69 triumph.
