Solid guard play, led by Trey Sharpe’s 35 points, allowed the Horizon to break through for their first win of the season, 112 to 104 over the Washington Madness.

The return of Jamal Palmer (former Horizon player and coach) added the floor leadership that the Horizon had been lacking. Clicking on all cylinders, the Horizon rebounded from a 57 to 52 halftime deficit, playing a close third quarter and then exploding in the fourth to outscore the Madness 35 to 18 to claim the 8-point victory.

The Horizon went ahead at 103 to 102 with three minutes left in the 4th. They never looked back. Dom Asbury contributed 11 of his 20 points and Justin Simmons made 8 straight from the foul line in the final quarter.
