The Conquerors trailed by two at the break before opening the second half on a 12-2 run, and carried the momentum as they extended their lead to as many as 21 in the fourth quarter.
Four players scored in double figures for Kentwood, led by a 19-point performance by Rayvaughn Bolton. Darius Lubom scored 18, Koby Huerta had 16 and Eli'sha Sheppard added 13 points.
