Coleman claimed another double-double, tallying 23 points and 10 rebounds, in a game centered around using his height to Woodrow's advantage, allowing the Woodrow players to notch a quick win.

Woodrow's half-court offensive sets were focused on finding Coleman in the post to score the high-percentage shots and get Pinkston's (13-18) big men in foul trouble. In turn, it opened up room for Woodrow's guards to penetrate and score later in the game, Woodrow guard Chance Houston said.

"We just gave it to Zach and then our guards penetrated and hit our guys on the wing or dish to the big men for the dunk," Houston said. "Everything else just fell in place.
