CRC ventured up to Santa Rosa needing an upset victory to solidify their chances for making the playoffs and almost got what they needed although it was no fault of the Hawks Leondre Lintz.
Lintz poured in 44 points against the Bear Cubs trying to single handedly keep the Hawks in contention. The Hawks trailed by just two at the half by a 43-32 margin as Lintz began his assault with an unassuming 17 points which included 3 3-pointers, but he was just warming up.
The second half was almost all Lintz as he scored 27 of the Hawks 40 points including 4 more three pointers. In fact, Lintz scored 20 of the Hawks last 24 points of the game.
With the loss the Hawks are now 12-12 on the year and fall to 3-6 in Big 8 play.
