The Rams shot out to an early lead and never looked back. It was a 21 point lead at half that ultimately became a 29 point win. Gavilan shot 45% from the field and while hitting 6 shots from behind the three point line. Most impressively was their free throw shooting as they hit 14 of their 15 attempts.
