"We just knew we had it in us," Fisher, who scored 10 of his 12 points in the second half, said about the fourth quarter run. "We were just kind of shooting off and everything was just kind of off. In the halftime we talked in the locker room about it, we just knew we were going to come out and make a run with this great team we have this year."

Ethan Erickson lead the Huskies with 19 points.

Conner Milton led FHC with 17 points and 14 rebounds, Dallas Hopson added 14 points.
