“We shot the ball so much better than we did in our previous two games,” Hemlock coach Matt Bauer said. “We made seven threes in the first half. Mitch Hingston got his first start of the season tonight and responded with 12 points and four threes including three in the first quarter.
“We really had good balance with seven players scoring six or more points. I thought we played with tremendous energy. I thought Millington shot it pretty well too, making seven three-pointers of their own.”
