Cassopolis took an 11-point lead (49-38) into the fourth quarter.
“We played hard and we played good defense,” Evans said. “They made a run in the third quarter. I was proud of the way we kept our composure and put the game out of reach. I thought we move the ball well on offense and got a lot of fast break baskets. Overall, I happy with our performance.”
Cassopolis had four players in double figures, led by Xander Smith’s 15 points.
Kiambu Gary and Tyrese Hunt-Thompson both finished with 13 points and Darrion Gatson 10.
