In the second half, the Red Hawks showed some signs of life, when trailing by 22 points they went on a 10-0 run to cut the lead to 42-30 with 13:39 to play. Daveron Ross, Ian Corella and Jordan Collins all contributed to the run. The Mustangs, however, regained control of the game and pushed their lead back to 22 points, which was their final margin of victory.
