Phil Campbell beat Phillips 75-60. Phillips led the Bobcats 18-17 at the end of the first quarter, but Phil Campbell outscored the Bears 20-14 in the second quarter to take a 37-32 halftime lead.

The Bobcats put the game away in the third quarter, outscoring the Bears 21-8 to take a 58-40 lead into the final period of play.

Hyde led Phil Campbell with 19 points. Kyle Pace added 15 points, and Clay had 14 points. Habada and Goodson added 11 points each.
