On Jan 21st the Hawks traveled to Prentice and won 58-43. The Blackhawks got down early 8-2 but their trapping defense came up with 12 first half steals and turned things around quickly.
The Hawks went on a 19-7 run and lead 37-20 at the half. Jayden Hansen had 12 pts along with Hayden Weiler and Vincent Henke with 8 apiece. In the second half, the Hawks kept the pressure on the Buccaneers getting 8 more steals.
We also ran some good offense shooting 43% and passing the ball well. Ryan Nelson had a team high 5 assists and Hansen 6 steals. The team controlled things down the stretch as rebounding was strong.
Henke had 11 boards and Ryan Nelson 9. We also took care of the ball having only 13 turnovers. Defense was key for us as it created some of our offense. On a steal or rebound we pushed the ball up the floor very well and finished. Great Road Win!
