The BlueJays dropped the game 62-26 to the eventual champions, who have now won their own tourney four straight years.

The loss set up the third place game with 6A Norman North on Saturday.

Unlike the first night, the Jays jumped out to a 13-1 lead on the Timberwolves only to see North take the lead for good in the second quarter. North was able to build a lead as much as 13 points, but Guthrie fought back to pull within five late in the game.

However, it was not enough as Guthrie fell 64-59 to fall to 3-8 on the season.

Senior guard Jerrick Warren was named to the All-Tournament team as he finished with 44 points in the three games.

Senior JT McFadden added 30 points and junior Edgar Baez poured in 35 over the three-day event.

Up next, Guthrie will get back into conference play when they travel to Piedmont on Tuesday.
