The Hornets sealed the victory from the free-throw line, getting two from Wallen and one each from Tyler Meadows and Chris Marmon.

The game had been close all the way, with White River leading 16-14 after one quarter, 33-32 at intermission and 45-44 after three periods of play.

Joining Wallen in double figures were Larsen with 16 and Cameron Cawley with 12. Rounding out the Hornet scoring were Trevor Truax 8 points, Meadows 5, Hunter Mills 4, Ryan Lusk 3 and Marmon 1.
