Hong, a Decatur grad, hit his first six shots, including five from behind the arc, for 20 first-half points.
Evergreen’s lead ballooned to 27 in the second half, but the Loggers (1-3) fought back to get within six until Travis Wagner, who also attended Decatur, hit a pair of free throws with five second left to ice the win.
Derek Jobe and Riggs Yarbro led UPS with 11 points each.
