The spring edition of Lindenwood’s Intramural Basketball season continued Tuesday night over at the new Evans Commons courts. Several different teams competed against one another within one of two divisions. Divisions are split into a competitive league and a recreational. The games brought in quite the crowd including the players’ friends. Fans showed support by cheering with unique chants and homemade signs. A couple of the games on this particular night had the crowd on the edge of their seats as one of the competitive league’s games was won on a last second shot, and a recreational league game had to be decided in overtime.
