Junior Joseph Grab led all scorers with 36 points, freshman Conner Adams scored 10 points, sophomores Isaac Keane and Liam Manning finished with 8 points each, sophomore Darryn Callahan added 5 points, senior Daniel Mitchell pitched in 4 points, and senior Karter Witmer rounded out the scoring with 2 points.

Callahan grabbed 6 rebounds, Keane added 6 steals and 5 rebounds, Adams had 4 rebounds and 4 assists, and Grab added 2 rebounds, 4 steals, and 4 assists. Mitchell made 3 assists and seniors Ty Morral and Carson Davis both pulled down 3 rebounds.

The Hornets started out the night with a 49-12 win in the JV game, ending a 4-game skid. Freshman Cameron Brought led Wellsboro with 11 points and freshman Spencer Wetzel added 10.
