Humber came out hot to begin the game, shooting five-for-nine from behind the arc, as they put up 25 points in the opening quarter. St. Clair was able to keep pace however as they shot 44.3 percent from the field scoring 22 points in the first.
Jimmy Rich was huge for Humber in the second, as he was a force down in the paint scoring ten of his 14 points in the quarter, finishing a perfect five-for-five from the field. The Hawks still trailed however before Otoo capped off the quarter with a dunk at the buzzer giving Humber a one-point lead at the break.
The Hawks extended their lead in the third, as it was again their offence that was the catalyst.
