Vince Moten led Boxers with 18 points and countless blocked shots, securing a 58–51 win.

ScrumDrag: In honor of the Gotham Knights Rugby Club’s 11th anniversary, the team hosted a homecoming game, putting together two sides in an A Side (Blue) vs. Old Boys (Silver) match of drag rugby. The calls were fast and furious with fuchsia dresses failing to roll away and purple-airport-carpet-pattern dress playing the ball on the ground. Final results: Gotham Blue, 10; Gotham Silver, 0.
