The Warriors continued to outscore MCC and went into halftime up 39-25.
Calvary picked up right where they left off in the second half outscoring the Thunder by 10 in the third quarter and leading 61-37 at the end of the period. The fourth quarter was tighter all around, but Manhattan posed no threat to the Warriors who cruised to the 76-54 victory.
