Wyatt Yearout made his lone basket of the game a 3-pointer at the buzzer to send the Hawks to another close win at the SunDome Shootout in Yakima.

Bellevue Christian tied the game at 41-41 with 15 seconds left. Hockinson set up for the final shot.

"We made the plays we needed to in the fourth," Hockinson coach Matt Gruhler said. "If Wyatt credit. ... This is a guy who averages 16 points a game, and missed a bunch of shots today. But he stepped up and hit a big shot when it mattered most."

The win gives the Hawks (6-6) a modest three-game win streak as the open league play in the Class 2A Greater St. Helens League next week against favorite Mark Morris.
