Former Baylor star Isaiah Austin poured in a game-high 23 points, going 8-for-13 from the field, to lead Loyalty Is Love to an 88-71 win over Fort Wayne Champs. With the win, Loyalty Is Love advances to the TBT 2019 Quarterfinals in Chicago August 1-6. The Boogie Cousins-led squad also received strong outings from Darius Johnson-Odom (18 points, 5 rebounds).

Taylor Braun made a layup to cap a 6-0 run and send Eberlein Drive to Chicago, courtesy of a dramatic 68-67 victory over Team Challenge ALS with included Dee Bost, Marquez Haynes, Austin Daye, and D.J.Strawberry.
