Brayden Cousino’s 15 points paced the Purple Tigers while Kendal Bayse tossed in 12, Laquarious Trapp seven, Kaden Seay five, Lance Fripp two and Hayden Dicken a free throw.
Power forward Jackson Painter scored 17 points for Winfree Bryant while LaQuarrius Talley deposited nine, Fisher Bradshaw eight and Eli Coggins five.
