#37, #3 St. Andrews Episcopal (26-6) (Ridgeland) 51

#44, #5 Tylertown (21-6) (Tylertown) 39

Tylertown came to play. They are one of the most well-rounded and talented teams in 3A and are on the way up. However, Garrison Wade (6-6 ’18 F St. Andrews Episcopal 26 pts 8-13 fg 10-13 ft 16 reb 4 ast 2 blk 2 st) had possibly the best game of the tournament to keep his career alive for at least one more game. William Harkness (6-1 ’19 G/F St. Andrews Episcopal 4 pts 10 reb 3 st) didn’t have the best game stat wise but he seemed to be a key factor on just about every play.

#30, #2 Holly Springs (22-9) (Holly Springs) 48

#57, #8 Ruleville Central (20-10) (Ruleville) 45

Ruleville has made a huge turn from the first of the year until now. A 16 game winning streak was snapped and it ended up being a costly one. DaQuan “Quanny” Smith (6-2 ’18 G Holly Springs/Murray State 21 pts 3 3’s 4-4 ft 7 reb 4 st) snagged an offensive board off of a free-throw and then hit two free-throws to preserve the win.

#16, #7 Greenville (23-7) (Greenville) 52

Greenville had a strong gutsy performance but it wasn’t enough to overcome the powerful Meridian team. Tyron”Ty” Brewer (6-6 ’18 F Meridian 22 pts 8-10 fg 6-7 ft 10 reb 2 blk) earned Player of the Game honors with his double-double and efficient play. Danny Washington (5-11 ’19 PG Greenville 19 pts 3 3’s 8-10 ft 6 ast 3 st) played a tremendous game for Greenville in the loss.

#3, #3 Columbus (26-6) (Columbus) 44

#1, #1 Starkville (25-4) (Starkville) 34

The defensive struggle was a showing of just how good these teams are. In the end, Columbus had something that Starkville had and that is Robert Woodard II (6-7 ’17 F Columbus/Miss State 15 pts 7-8 fg 9 reb 2 blk). Woodard hit another level in his play and looked like a man playing with boys.
