In the 2nd half the Angels couldn’t pull away but kept a comfortable lead all 2nd half to defeat the Hawks 71-54. Evan Moherek led the team with 21 points while Lamont Hamilton had 19 and Domonic Pitts had 12. Saturday afternoon the Angels traveled to Martin Luther for what would turn out to be a very challenging Metro Classic Conference game.

Lamont Hamilton took the ball to the rim for the final basket of the game as the Angels defeated the Spartans 56-54. Davion Thomas-Kumpula led the team with 18 points while Lamont Hamilton and Domonic Pitts each had 14.
