Taylor Treadway scored 18 points as the Lady Bucs (5-9) held off a late Unaka rally for the win over their conference foe.
Shanda Matheson hit a 3-point goal to pull the Lady Rangers (5-12) within two points with 15 seconds left.
On the next possession, UH's Barrett Wherry got a loose ball out of a scramble and scored on a lay-up to put the game away. Wherry ended with a double-double of 10 points and 10 rebounds, while Lexi Crouthers had a 15-point effort.
"When we play with enthusiasm and energy, I like how we play as a team," UH coach Rayne Price said.
"Taylor had been struggling behind the perimeter, but she's coming around. Barrett had a great game, a double-double as she was rebounding the ball really well. She did a good job on (Brandi) Ensor when we needed her the most."
Ensor and Jessie Matheson scored a dozen points apiece to lead Unaka. The Lady Rangers trailed 18-9 after one quarter, but scored 11 straight to take the lead.
UH responded with the next eight points to go ahead 26-20. They led the rest of the way.
