Trinity shot 42.1% from the field including seven of 15 from the three point line.  The Shamrocks connected on 11 of 16 free throws, pulled own 30 rebounds, and scored 12 points off seven Scott County turnovers.  Scott County shot 32.7% from the field including four of 20 from beyond the arc.  The Cardinals connected on four of eight free throws, pulled down 28 rebounds, and scored 10 points off seven Scott County turnovers.

 

David Johnson led Trinity with 22 points including five three point baskets, 12 rebounds, two assists, and four blocked shots.  Stan Turnier added 17 points including two three point baskets, five of six free throws, seven rebounds, and two steals.  Jamil Hardaway recorded eight points and six rebounds.
