Skyhawks Take On Oakton In Consolation Championship

Taking on Oakton, a team that had defeated the Skyhawks on Nov. 12, the Skyhawks were ready to settle the score with the Raiders. But the first half saw the the Skyhawks fall behind early due to poor shooting and a defensive effort that saw Oakton continue to get open looks at the basket. The Skyhawks got a good rebounding effort and took care of the ball to stay close at the half, trailing 46-43. The second half was all Skyhawks as they picked up the defensive effort holding Oakton to 28pts and very few open looks while topping their first half output by one for an 87-74 consolation championship victory.

The Skyhawks behind point guard Robbie Minor had only 10 turnovers for the game against the athletic Raiders. For the Skyhawks on offense, the three sophomore captains combined for 75 pts between them with Kwan Waller leading the way with 28pts, followed by DJ Williams with 26pts, and Rico Combs had his third double double of the tournament with 21 pts and 17 rebounds.
