Hendrix cut into it with a basket, but later, Hargraves drained a jumper and Lynah Bontiff hit a layup as time expired pushing UAM’s lead to 15 points.

To end the half, the Blossoms continued to score in the second quarter. A few big scoring runs sparked by a couple of shots by Bradley helped the Blossoms take a 34-point advantage into halftime.
