Durham’s Cocoa Cinnamon Cuts Down Nets In Inaugural March Mugness

How sweet it is!

Durham’s Cocoa Cinnamon defeated fellow Bull City coffee shop Guglhupf in the Coffee Championship to win the inaugural March Mugness tournament, sponsored by Fourscore Business Law.

The ever-spicy Cocoa Cinnamon had no trouble in the title game, cruising past Guglhupf by a 79-35 score. CC’s only close call came in a hard-fought 26-22 victory over Beyu Caffe—the top seed in the Downtown Durham Region—in the Elite Eight. Overall, the champ outscored its four opponents by a combined total of 196-88.

The winner was revealed live on Friday’s edition of The Friday Nooner. The show also broke an exclusive story on a voting scandal in the Final Four(score) showdown between Guglhupf and Morning Times, but you’ll have to watch for all the details.

Now let’s take a look back at how Cocoa Cinnamon got here after starting as the No. 4 seed in the Downtown Durham bracket.

1st Round: Cocoa Cinnamon 50, Joe Van Gogh 30
Sweet 16: Cocoa Cinnamon 36, Mad Hatter’s 13
Elite Eight: Cocoa Cinnamon 26, Beyu Caffe 22
Final Four(score): Cocoa Cinnamon 46, La Farm 10
