Banking on its defensive resiliency, Rain or Shine limited Blackwater to just 10 fourth quarter points on a paltry 2-of-16 shooting.

“Our defensive identity carried us tonight,” said Painters head coach Chris Gavina. “Although it was a low-scoring game, we had to have the disposition on the defensive end.”
