Upton was the reigning 1A Boys state champion and the favorite to win this year's title as well. The championship game wasn't an easy endeavor for the Bobcats as a pesky Dubois team have them all they could handle. Upton put a big run together in the 2nd half and the Rams never recovered. The Bobcats win it 58-51 to finish the year 28-1.

Luca Brooks of Upton may in fact be the most dynamic player in the state and has the ability to take games over single-handedly. Brooks had 12 points on Saturday and he was averaging 19 per game. But he commands a lot of attention which gives his teammates some opportunities. Dawson Smith finished with 16 and Nathan Baker had a dozen.

Dubois is a rugged group and they had a gifted player in Cody Wright who poured in 26 points going 10-24 from the field. Max Claar is a talented all-around athlete who had 10 points as the Rams wrap up the year 24-3. After making just one appearance state tournament appearance in a 15-year span, Dubois has now made the big show 2 years in a row.
