Camden's Tavaris Headen didn't get off to the quickest of starts while his team did the opposite, but when the Panthers slowed down, Headen showed his explosive scoring ability.

Entering the final, the Panthers hadn't played a game in 15 days, and in that period spent a lot of time getting better, especially on defense.
