New Heights came out blazin' but Shaquille Stokes would quiet things down with two jump shots and an assist to Dave Samuels to put MetroHawks back in the game but still down by three points.

Pinkston would display his versatility, bangin' down shots from the perimeter as New Heights also dominated on both the offensive and defensive boards early. New Heights took full advantage had the twin towers of 6'8"Pankey and 6'7" Devon Collier.

6'1" sophomore Brandon Frazier of Bishop Loughlin would net two threes from the left corner while Devon "Fatty" McMillian would clean up down middle as New Heights lead would extend to 8 points as the first quarter ended.

Dyrek Jones would finally put something down for the MetroHawks midway through the third quarter.

With Pankey and Collier defending the paint, the MetroHawks would get virtually no lay-ups or offensive rebounds. It would be one an done for the befuddled Hawk team both offensive and seemingly by games end as New Heights maintained a 16 point lead.

The MetroHawks problems would be compounded as Jones would get a knee injury late in the third quarter after a collision with Pinkston.
