Holding the Hornets to single digits until the 3rd quarter, the Rockets raced to the convincing win.  Westwood carried a double digit lead throughout most of the game.  Trent Thompson led Westwood in scoring with 9 points.  Luke Beachboard and John Dobson each had 8 points and Will Partin finished with 7 points for the Rockets.  The Rockets finish the regular season with a record of 8 and 5.
