“This was a physical battle on top of a long road trip for our guys. We were happy to come out of Twin Valley with a win. Mason Hammer shot the ball well in the first half, which helped us get out to an early lead,” said head coach Randy Misegades.

The Arrows utilized their height advantage throughout the night and made things difficult for the Hornets on the offensive end of the court. Henning shot just 37 percent from the field and went just 7-21 from behind the 3-point line.
