Team was 10-for 16 from the field at one point, operating out of a 1-3-1 offense that spread the court. But Prep, whose David Stockton hit three 3-pointers, rallied from a 12-7 first-quarter deficit to lead 23-19.

Inglemoor then scored 10 points in the final 4 minutes of the half to go from 27-24 behind to 29-27 ahead.
