GAME NOTES: —Northwest controlled the tempo of 1st quarter to the tune of an 11-10 lead at the end of the period. Smith capitalized on some unforced errors by the Vikings and sprinted to a 28-23 halftime lead. During a very entertaining 3rd quarter, Northwest hung tough, but could not get over the hump as shots that normally fall for the Vikings did not at the Special Events Center of the Coliseum.
—Smith was led by T. Gathings who poured in 27 points for the Eagles as they move on in the winner’s bracket of the Pizza Hut Invitational.
—Viking point guard, Matt Pawlowski, had a very aggressive mentality from the start and finished with 14 points, 5 assists & 5 steals.
