Illini Bluffs over Illini West 80-48   December 30, 2016
Bruninga breaks tournament points record in 5th place win
The Illini Bluffs Tigers are the fifth place trophy winner with a 80-48 victory over the Illini West Chargers. 
It was also a record setting performance for the Tigers' Taylor Bruninga. His 28 point performance gives a four game tournament record total of 134 point.  That breaks the previous record of 129 points set by David McGinnis of Illini Central in 1990.

Bruninga also breaks two more records, free throws made and free throws attempted. He made 57 of 61 from the stripe in four games. Previously the record for attempts was held by Mark Dohner of VIT with 43 in 1970.
Most made was held by Hunter Rhodes of Canton in 2013 with 32. Fun fact of the day is that Rhodes now plays at Northern Iowa, who has been noted to be making recruiting visits to games at which Burninga is on the court.  

Three other Tigers scored in double figures.  Brock Bower had 15, Cam Scott tallied 14 and Braden Cox chipped in 11. 
Jackson Porter led Illini West with 22 points and six rebounds.
