The offense picked up in the third period for both teams, as they each scored 19 points.
Kanab chipped one point off the six point deficit in the final frame of action, but the Cowboys fell five points short, losing 61-56.

Millard wasn’t about to lay down, as they closed the gap to 51-42 after three quarters of action. The Cowboys held on for the eight point victory, 68-60.
Brandon Jenson was red-hot from behind the three-point line, as he canned six treys, on his way to a game-high 24 points. Mark Bate tallied 18 points and hauled in 14 rebounds, while Conor Corry yanked down 16 boards and dished out nine assists. Taylor Glover also had a good game, netting 11 points.
