"I'm speechless, I'm so speechless. I'm just so proud of my team," said Bowles afterwards. "I'm so glad I came to B-MEG planet...[and] won my first championship, with this team."

Bowles calmly made both free throws to tie the game at 76-all. Jason Castro got the inbound but his heave managed to hit only the backboard.
