Since the start of the intramural basketball season, the action has been non-stop.

The 628th Security Forces Squadron and 628th Civil Engineer Squadron teams battled it out on the court, Feb. 25, 2014, at the Fitness Center on Joint Base Charleston - Air Base, S.C.

When the smoke cleared, the 628th CES team was victorious with a final score of 51 to 37.

"We feel really good about the win," said Kirt Wallace, 628th CES team coach. "They may have beaten us last year but we got them this time."

The victory did not come easy though, the 628th SFS team put up a fight.

"We struggled early on," said Kerry Lehman, 628th SFS team coach. "We didn't really get going until the second quarter, which cost us."

Fouls played a big role in the first half, allowing the 628th CES team to gain a substantial lead from free throws.

The score at half-time was 26 to 19, with the 628th SFS team down by 7.

"Adjustments were made at half-time and there were significant improvements," said Lehman. "Unfortunately it was not enough to get the win."

The 628th CES team is undefeated this season after winning their fourth game in a row.
