Tulaip Heritage's Josh Lukes dishes it over to the wing for an open three at Tulalip Heritage High School, on Jan. 31.

On Jan. 31, the Tulalip Heritage Hawks boys basketball team took on the Providence Christian Highlanders.

From the tipoff the Hawks seemed to just be a better overall team as they passed more efficiently and used their size to create mismatches. At the end of the first quarter the Highlanders had fallen behind by a score of 20-8. Then, in the second quarter, the Hawks maintained their dominance, finishing the first half at 38-14.

The second half was a different story as Providence Christian kept each quarter's score close, 12-10 and 19-18. However, the first half dominance was too much for the Highlanders to overcome as the Hawks walked away with the victory, 68-43.

Tulalip's Nashone Whitebear cuts through the lane and puts up the midrange shot against Providence Christian at Tulalip Heritage High School on Jan. 31.

"One of our main things is keeping the ball moving and making sure we execute offensively by running our sets. We definitely want to move the ball quickly to get a better shot. Heading into the postseason we should be sitting at a four or five seed, which isn't where we want to be, but we are going to come out and play hard each and every night," said Assistant Coach Cyrus Fryberg Jr.

Rodney Barber absolutely controlled the game on the offensive and defensive end for the Tulalip Heritage Hawks. Barber finished with a game high as he dropped 24 points on the Highlanders. He crashed the boards as well, as he claimed his double-double with a combination of offensive and defensive rebounds.

Two other contributors scored in double digits for the Hawks as well, with point guard Josh Lukes and shooting guard Nashone Whitebear dropping in 10 points each. These three players combined for a total of 44 points, besting Providence Christian's team total of 43.

The regular season is over for the Hawks so they will be looking to move on and have success in the postseason.
