The Royals of Hope International didn't give them a pleasant good-bye gift as HIU defeated the Hawks 75-67 Tuesday night.
Brandon finished with 11 assists and scored eight points. Dickerson finished with eight points and four rebounds.
Trailing by seven with 2:17 remaining, the Hawks finished out the half on an 8-0 run as Trevor English converted on a 3-point attempt and Josh Richardson swished home a 3-pointer of his and a layup to give the Hawks a 34-33 halftime lead.
In the closely contested second half, neither team held a lead higher than five points until the very end when SDC was fouling HIU to get as many possessions left as possible. After Brandon hit one of his 3-pointers, HIU went on an 8-0 run of their own to all but seal it with 30 seconds remaining.
Trevor English tied a game-high 20 points as he 7-of-10 from the floor. Rafael Rodriguez was next with 14. The Hawks finished shooting 23-of-52 (44.2 percent) from the field and 10-of-24 (41.7 percent) from trey.
The Royals went 28-of-65 shooting from the field and shot 35.3 percent from beyond the arc. Matt Green netted 20 points for the Royals.
