Farr fin­ished with 15 points, in­clud­ing a pair of 3-point­ers in the fourth quar­ter. Guy fin­ished with 13 points, in­clud­ing nine in the fourth quar­ter. Cop­per scored 10 points.

“Jae­don plays big,” Coach Hyn­son said. “He’s got those long arms and he’s swat­ting stuff out of there. He came up big with a couple blocked shots and he made some free throws at the end of the game too.”

Hyn­son led the Lions with 14 points.

The Lions, who were the de­fend­ing re­gion champions, lost all five starters to grad­u­a­tion off last sea­son’s team.

“I knew we were go­ing to be young in key po­si­tions this year. I knew we were go­ing to have some grow­ing pains,” Be­craft said. “We didn’t have as strong a sup­port­ing cast as we had last year. We lost all our starters plus our sixth man. But the guys that came back, this year’s se­niors stepped up. They did a nice job.

“We didn’t lose to any­body we should have beat, but we didn’t get that one vic­tory against a team that we shouldn’t have beat, and we al­most got it tonight,” Be­craft added.
