Minor Prophets beat expectations, cruising to a 118.24-94.24 win over Layne Ducks, who fell short of projections. Minor Prophets nabbed an early 2.44-point lead on Thursday. Layne Ducks came back to take the lead late afternoon Sunday, powered by Brandon Aiyuk (15.1 points) and Keenan Allen (12.7).
