The Pioneers took a 16-1 first-quarter lead and led 21-7 at the end of the first quarter. Utah Jones got the Pioneers rolling with a game-opening 3-point basket, which sparked a 16-1 run capped by an Aaron Dobbins basket.

The Pioneers knocked down 28 shots from the field on 20 assists. Watauga just made 3-of-4 shots from the foul line.
