After trailing 20-12 at the end of the 1st quarter, the Clippers outscored the Warriors 34-20 in the middle two quarters and held a 47-40 lead into the 4th quarter. Chester could not find their mark in the final quarter shooting only 20% while Sanford connected on 80% of their shots and knocked down 9 of 12 free throws. Sanford led 58-57 with 26 second remaining in the game and after a timeout found themselves at the charity strip. After connecting on 1 of 2 shots, the Clippers called timeout with 12 seconds on the clock and down by two - 59-57. Their final shot fell short and the Clippers were sunk in the 3rd Annual Fred Pickett Classic.
