Clinton Springer-Williams scored 12 of his 15-points in the first-half and pulled down 7 rebounds.

Two-time MVP Phillip Scrubb barely broke a sweat adding 13 points, three rebounds and four assists in just 22 minutes.

Head Coach Dave Smart emptied his bench for much of the second-half, allowing his upcoming talent to get some valuable minutes on the big stage as every Raven player over eight minutes.
