The game was close throughout the first half as both teams shot 40% from the 3-point line. The score at the half was 39-39. SCC's Paulo Araujo was 4 for 4 from deep and scored 14 points in the half.
With some defensive adjustments in the 2nd half, the Hawks took control of the game and finished with an 86-74 victory. Araujo continued his hot shooting converting 7 3's in the game on 8 attempts, while finishing with a team-high 29 points. Antoine Jenkins chipped in with 22 points, AJ Garrity scored 14 points, and David Agba finished with 11 points. Agba also had a team-high 7 rebounds and 6 assists. After the game, Assistant Coach, Tom McCanna, said, "David played a great all-around game contributing on both sides of the court. Paul Vilela was critical to our defense with 3 steals, and it's always fun watching Paulo get hot from 3."
