LAS VEGAS (WTHR) - An Indianapolis teenager is striking it rich against some of the top bowlers in the game.

Sixteen-year-old Jalen Mosley topped five-time PBA Tour champion Mike Wolfe to advance in the USBC Masters tournament in Las Vegas. Needing a spare and nine pins to win the match, Mosley calmly knocked down two strikes to get the victory.

Wolfe is a New Albany, Indiana native, who now lives in Floyds Knobs.

Mosley is competing in the "elimination bracket" of the tournament and will face Michael Tang on Saturday. By the end of the day Saturday, five bowlers will remain in competition for Sunday's finals, which will be broadcast live on ESPN (1 p.m. EST).
