Southwest did a good job of spreading the ball around to all of the players. It looked like they knew where everyone was supposed to be on the floor.

Southwest's Tyler Eric Wayne Porch did a good job of finding his teammates. He knew where they were at all times and he was not afraid to pass them the ball if he thought that they had a good shot. His teammate Terral Dojorn Sampson did a good job of getting rebounds in the paint and putting the ball back up in the basket.

At halftime the score was Southwest 26 and New Life Academy 17.

Southwest was able to get everyone involved in the offense and they were able to chew up clock in the second half while making shots.

Southwest's Cameron James Ross was all over the floor. He took the ball hard to the basket and was not afraid to shoot the ball if he thought that he had a good shot. Ross was successful at making shots that he put up, mostly shots within the three-point line. He was not afraid to pull the three-point shot although.
