Indian Hills scored 19 consecutive points in the second half on Tuesday in a 76-74 win over No. 2 John A. Logan. The Volunteers failed to score after a tiebreaking shot by J'Vonne Hadley with 9.6 seconds left in regulation put the Warriors in front as a defensive stand on the final possession of the game allowed IHCC to hand John A. Logan its first loss of the season.

Indian Hills relied on a bevy of reserves to limit the Volunteers in the paint, including Leeroy Odiahi who contributed his best performance of the season. Enoch Kalambay came off the bench to add eight points for the Warriors.
