Voirol didn't start the game for the 6-14 Jets but entered several minutes into the contest and immediately made his presence known. With the Jets trailing 8-2, Voirol scored three first period baskets, the last of which came on the third offensive rebound of an AC possession to bring them back to within one at 11-10.

"I'm retiring the singlet," Kaine announced two minutes after the medal ceremony at 170 pounds.
"It was fun while it lasted, and it felt good to end this way. It didn't end quite how I wanted it to, but I was on the podium."
The person who knows Kaine the best, his mother, Diane, is not surprised that he is ready to move on with his life.
