Sophomore playmaker Brandon Hull led the Bulldogs with 14 points.

"Lincolnview outworked us in every way possible," said Ada third-year head coach Dre White. "We knew we would have to match their physical toughness, and we were unable to do so.

"A lot of credit to Brett (Hammons) and his kids; they play the right way and play extremely hard."

Senior Zane Miller led the Lancers with 14 points, while classmates Ethan Kemler and Alek Bowersock each scored 10 points.
