The Bears received 15 points and eight rebounds from Taylor Peveto. Christian Wendt had 11 points and eight boards while Blake Fuss contributed 10 points and nine rebounds.

WO-S canned Galveston Ball 69-51 in the semifinals and led 58-31 going to the final period, forcing the Tors into 33 turnovers.

Paige led the way with 21 points and had six rebounds as 11 different Mustangs scored. Chase Rutledge filtered in 12 points while Tyrant Thompson had eight and Travon Blanchard added seven.
