The second quarter was not much different with both teams scoring 17 points a piece. Groves talked about the shooting performances from the two schools. “I thought both teams were going to reach 100 [points],” he said. “They shot lights out and we shot pretty decent in the first half.” But after halftime, the Blackhawks stepped on the gas pedal and did not look back. They scored 29 points in the fourth quarter, 15 more points than the Trojans. Junior guard Timmy Watson was instrumental in the comeback.

“I'm so excited for our kids and for our program,” head coach Mike Wilhelm said. “We talked with this group about being champions months ago, because we knew we had the ingredients to be a championship team. But we had to grow and we learned from our losses and from some of our weaknesses throughout the year. I think we corrected those and that's how you become a championship team.”
