"I was really happy at the end when we took Andrew out with four fouls, other guys extended the lead," Greenhills coach Andrew Wright said. "We were able to, without him being on the floor, were still able to take care of the ball."
Archibong scored 13 and Emmet Kulka scored 10 for Greenhills (8-6).
Koji Vroom scored 25 and Steven Molitor 21 for Steiner (7-5), which dressed six players for the game. The two combined for all 18 Steiner fourth-quarter points.
