Dawson Woolum finished with 16 points, and London Stephney ended the night with 12 points.

Gavon Thomas paced the offensive effort for Williamsburg, scoring 19 points on 66.7 percent shooting. He was a perfect 5-for-5 from three-point range.

Slaht Hunter tallied 14 points and nine rebounds. Jason Bray ended the game with 12 points, and Caleb Rose scored 11 points while hauling in nine rebounds.
