Gibbs got the Gators rolling early. He hit a pair of 3-pointers in a span of three possessions midway through the first quarter to give VHS a double-digit lead it never relinquished. Brown later hit two treys on back-to-back possessions to make it 30-12 with 3:44 left in the second quarter. Pearl never recovered.
