Collin Bonner and Will Bonner scored 12 points and 11 points respectively for the Bulldogs.

Red Bay got a monster game out of Braden Ray to beat Lauderdale County 63-58 in the quarterfinals of the tournament.

Red Bay trailed 33-31 at halftime before outscoring Lauderdale County 32-25 in the second half to get the win.

Ray scored 25 points, going nine for 10 in the second quarter and 14 for 16 overall and hitting three three-pointers.
