Defense shined the brightest for the fourth seeded Indians, who held Adams Central to just 35 points total, a team that averaged 72 points per game this season.

With the game tied at 33 late, Ogallala put things into high gear. Carter Brown hit a driving layup to give the Indians a lead that they would not give back. Late free throws helped seal the win.
