Tention fueled the Hawks’ early dominance, scoring 10 of his team’s first 21 points to build a commanding 17-point advantage before the midway point of the opening half. Assumption responded to cut the Hawks advantage to eight, but an Arbuckle trey with 10:35 to go in the first created a double-digit lead that held up throughout regulation.
