Despite some feisty play, Irving College was never able to cut the lead to single digits in the second half.Trey Cantrell added 19 points for Dibrell, while Dustin Hale was the top scorer for Irving College with 15.Irving College had the size advantage, but lacked the ball handling to deal with Dibrell’s full-court press.
