He scored 29 points, making four out of five free throws and a three pointer.
Lancers guard Shawn Hampton drove to the hoop constantly, giving him 16 free throw opportunities, 14 of which he made. He finished with a total of 21 points, but it wasn’t enough to dominate the game.
Pasadena forward Elliott Berry also contributed with two three-pointers, two out of six free throws and four field goals, giving him a total of 16 points.
