The Santa Cruz Warriors—D-League affiliates to the reigning world champion Golden State Warriors—may be 19-29 and second-to-last place in the Western Conference's Pacific Division, but they've sold out seven straight games after Wednesday night's overtime win over the Reno Bighorns, 121-118.

Most pertinent for Buckeyes fans, however, is that Aaron Craft messed around a got a triple-double. Craft did it all on the night—including a clutch 3-pointer in early overtime to give the Warriors a lead that proved insurmountable—before finishing with 21 points, 11 rebounds, and 13 assists.

Mav'Riks the sea turtle, the affable D-League mascot we all know and love, decided winning the last home game of the season called for drinking champagne sparkling cider(???) straight from the bottle while in the presence of small children wearing a WWE-styled title belt.

The Warriors have won one straight. They're next in action Friday night in Boise, Idaho to take on the 18-30 Idaho Stampede.
