On Saturday April 30th, Fury Antl opened up in bracket play vs. MBA Tlougan. Fury jumped out to a 30-18 halftime lead and didn't look back, fishing with a 60-45 win. They were led by guard Manny Jingco (15pts on 7-10FG) and big man Drew Wynia (12pts on 6-9FG, 6rebs). The next game in the bracket matched the Fury against MN Heat Butler. Full court pressure allowed the Fury to jump out to a 18-2 start and would lead at the half 38-11. After a slower second half, Fury ended up winning 52-38. A very balanced attack from the Fury was led by Manny Jingco (13pts, 3-4 3's), Sawyer Levos (10pts), Jack Greives (9pts). All 9 Fury players scored in this one.

On Sunday May 1st, Fury Antl beat MN Rise Purple 52-50 in the bracket championship to move on to the Final Four. This was a physical game inside, going back and forth the whole way. Manny Jingco (19pts on 7-11FG, 9rebs, 3stls) went to work down the stretch in this one, hitting a clutch 3 to tie and later hitting a mid range pull up jumper to ice it for the Fury. Carter Uphus (7pts, 7rebs, 2blks) also was huge on the boards and defending Rise bigs throughout the game. 
In the Championship bracket the Fury first were matched against MN Heat Pratt. A 32-32 tie at the half, Fury turned on the pressure in the 2nd and pulled out a tough, 67-54 victory. Another balanced attack had 3 guys in double figures. Manny Jingco (13pts), Sawyer Levos (11pts, 3-3 3's), Luke Siwek (10pts), Drew Wynia (9pts, 6rebs, 3stls, 2blks) Carter Uphus (8pts, 8rebs, 3blks), Jack Greives (8pts, 4rebs, 4asts, 6stls). In the Championship game Fury Antl faced MBA Witthus. Guard Manny Jingco and big man Drew Wynia both went down with injuries early in the first half and were missed. Big Carter Uphus was also limited with a minor injury to his shooting wrist. Fury were banged up and in the 5th game of the weekend, ran out of gas and dropped their only loss of the weekend 70-60. Guards Isaac Lotz (18pts, 4-6 3's) and Luke Siwek (17pts, 5-5 3's) stepped up big and the Fury hit 11 3's but shot just 35% from 2 and couldn't overcome their losses. A positive step for Fury Antl this weekend, going 4-1 and taking 2nd place in the Meg Vang Invite.
