The GetSportsFocus crew headed out to Mitty for the Game of the Week, and crowned MVP was senior JP Rindfleisch who hit four 3-pointers and finished the night with 27 points. The play maker of the game was who else, besides the “swaggiest” guy on the Mitty campus, as Justin Lum says – Matt McAndrews who had 9 points and 5 assists.
