Kamyn Wilkins had 13 kills and two aces, while Rady Kim had a team-high 30 assists.

Defensively, four different Humber players tallied five or more digs, led by Alex Bowden with 12 and Quinton Hudgins with eight.

Humber rolled out to a 25-23 first set win, backed by a .440 hitting percentage. Unfortunately for Humber, the Hawks' attack slipped over the next three sets, unable to score above .273 for the rest of the match.
