James Hatton led the way for the Bulldogs with 20 points. With the loss, the season has ended for the Bulldogs, who finish with a 16-9 record. The Bulldogs led going into the fourth quarter at home.

“We could have done a better job at playing our brand of basketball,” Bulldogs senior Raemaad Wright said. “We had solid leads when we slowed down and ran stuff. When we started playing like them, we had a few bad shots and turnovers, and our lead crumbled.”
