In the fourth game of the day, the DAT Wolves faced the Hillel Heat. The Wolves, who got destroyed by North Shore the day before, looked to give a better showing against a very good Hillel team. The Heat, who used their size to their advantage, started off on a 5-0 run. The Heat used their pressure defense to force turnovers, and continued pounding the Wolves inside, going up 9-0. Then, Joseph Anzarouth hit a three and Robert Tobias made a layup to put Hillel up 14-0. Aaron Brooks finally put DAT on the board by hitting a free throw, but Hillel was still well in control. Anzarouth hit another three, and Isaac Alboucai made a layup to put Hillel up double digits. With two minutes left in the quarter, Nathan Bibi scored for Hillel, and Jacob Wedgle made the first field goal of the game for DAT. Aaron Brooks followed by hitting another free throw to cut the Heat lead back down to single digits. Isaac Beda scored to end the first quarter and Hillel lead 25-4.

Hillel started the second quarter on a 12-0 run led by Isaac Beda’s eight points. Despite being up 33, the Heat continued to pressure and forced a lot of turnovers. The Heat ended the half up 43-4, outscoring the Wolves 18-0 in the second quarter.

Jakie Sasson scored the first bucket of the third for Hillel, but Aaron Brooks countered with a free throw on the other end. The Heat responded with a 6-0 run to end the quarter. At the end of the third quarter it was 52-5 Heat.
