Coach Matt Buer: “Hemlock jumped out to an 8-0 lead to start the game and never relinquished the lead. Nouvel made a few runs in the first half before Hemlock took control and built a 15-point lead going into halftime.
“Dylan LaGrow hit two big threes in that second quarter to widen the margin. Jayden Evans played an awesome game tonight. He plays so under control and has such a feathery touch around the rim. Bench play was a big part of our success tonight.”
The next game is Jan. 14 against Bullock Creek.
