The Razorbacks struggled offensively and shot just 35% for the game in their first ever state title appearance. Senior Kobe Stewart finished with 18 points to lead Cross Creek as they finish the year 25-7.
"My guys played with a lot of passion. They played with a lot of heart out there. When we got back in the locker room, it showed. And i hate that this is the last chapter for my seniors, but the positive is they laid it all out there on the line. They don't have anymore games to play. I told those juniors you can take a couple weeks and then we're going to get back in the gym and start working." said Lawrence Kelly
This was the best season in Razorback history as this was their first time ever in the championship game and first time in program history they registered 20 or more wins.
