Roger Sancho led North Hopkins with 22 points, while Jy'Darius Hawkins added 17.

"After a slow first quarter, we finally started to attack the inside of their zone," said NHHS coach Matt Rager. "The difference in the game came down to our bigs working hard on off rebounds and that we made more free-throws than they attempted. Those are two of our goals that we had listed before the game. The kids did a great job battling late in the game.
