In a fast-paced game that featured some hot shooting by both the 1988-89 Blue Jay varsity and the young Old-timers, the varsity came away with a hard earned 44-38 victory. Scoring slowed down in the last period as Larry Geise opened scoring followed by a tip-in by 1982 graduate Alan Kortokrax and a shot by his teammate Ron Schomaeker. The varsity came back with some baskets by Curt Mager and Doug Etgen. The varsity pulled ahead in the last minute as the Old-timers were forced to foul in an effort to get the ball.
