3/1/2013 - LITTLE ROCK AIR FORCE BASE, Ark. -- The soldiers in the grey jerseys took out the ones in the black jerseys Tuesday, winning an intramural basketball game between the two squads, 77-67.

The game featured a lot of co-worker versus co-worker competition, with both teams featuring a number of players who are based with the Army National Guard at Camp Robinson. In the matchup, the Black team took an early lead, controlling the perimeter of the court with an aggressive offensive game plan.

Their aggressive style of play paid off, as they stayed ahead of their rivals for most of the first half.

Undeterred by the pressure put on them, the Grey team entrenched themselves and welcomed the competition. They were able to overtake the Black team near the end of the first half.

After halftime, the Grey team dominated the game and was able to secure the victory handily 77-67.
