Hancock lost to College of the Sequoias 70-63. The College of the Sequoias held a slim three-point lead at the intermission after a well-matched opening half. The Bulldogs overcame an eight-point deficit and took their first lead of the frame on a go-ahead shot from beyond the arc Shawn Kelly with 10 minutes remaining in regulation. Teams traded baskets through the next five minutes of play, but the Giants put the game out of reach after capitalizing on a string of AHC turnovers down the stretch.
Kelly led the Bulldogs on scoring with a season-high showing of 20 points while also taking on five rebounds, two assists, and two steals. Amari Stroud also finished in double figures after tacking on 14 points while Bryce Craver chipped in with nine points and eight assists.

Stroud led the way on day two with a 24-point, 16-rebound double-double performance. Obadiah Curtis and Noah Haaland also finished in double figures with 11 points and 10 points, respectively, while Kelly snagged 12 rebounds.
