The fans are excited about Thursday night's match-up.

Bruins down nine with less than 30 seconds to go in the third quarter. Ryan Ball gets the bucket and one, he had a team-high 13.

He would miss the free throw, but Bruins get the rebound and Faust Ystueta drains the three pointer, it's a four point game.

We head to the fourth, Twin Falls with a chance to win the game here but ball puts a little too much on this layup, it's still 54 all.

Burley's Ryan Bagley with the long three point attempt, misses. We head into overtime.

Twin Falls goes into ball again, but there for the block Jackson Hill. Ball nearly gets this to go in, rebounded by Mitchell Brizee, that shot doesn't go in.

Burley up two, just over a minute to go, Bagley chases down the errant pass and takes off, and makes the basket to put the Bobcats up four.
