NORFOLK – The Northeast Community College men’s basketball team held off a late run by Iowa Central Community College, and went on to defeat the Tritons on Saturday, on  Day 2 of the Hawks Classic here, 86-81.

Northeast started off strong and was up by as much as 22 points in the first half. While Iowa Central came back and scored 49 second half points, it wasn’t enough as the Hawk’s Lyle Hexom hit a three pointer with under a minute to play to put the game out of reach.

Hexom finished with 20 points for Northeast, Jabbar Washington added 18 points, and Buay Tuach had 16. The Hawk’s Khapri Alston recorded his first double digit rebound game of the year, grabbing ten boards. Anthony Woods had a career high nine assists.
