Highlander fans storm court after opening night win at Liberty
The Hazen Highlander basketball team got their season off to a rousing start Tuesday night with a 68-66 win over Liberty that saw Hazen fans storming the court at Liberty when the buzzer sounded.
Dominic Green led the Highlanders with 23 points and 3 steals while Connor O’Hearn added 13 points and four assists. Anthony Phillips also had 7 points, 12 rebounds and added what Coach Ryan Thompson called a “big dunk.”
According to Thompson, the atmosphere at the game was “very exciting” for the early-season rivalry match-up, with large student sections cheering for both schools.
Hazen was scheduled head to Interlake for a game Wednesday that was too late for this edition of the paper and will host their home opener against Evergreen Dec. 11
