No. 4 Algona Garrigan 55, Springville 52

Springville led 25-22 at halftime and for much of the second half, but the Golden Bears (23-2) rallied to take a 50-48 lead on John Joyce's layup with just over three minutes left. Rhenden Wagaman tied it, then Angelo Winkel gave Garrigan the lead for good with 2:33 to go.

Alex Koppes was fouled on an inbounds play with 15.3 seconds left and the Orioles (20-6) down 53-52, but the front end of a one-and-one bounced off the front of the rim. After a Winkel offensive rebound of his own free-throw miss and two Joyce free throws, Winkel blocked Bryce Wilson's 3-point attempt at the buzzer.

Winkel picked up his fourth foul with 5:27 remaining in the third quarter and Springville immediately went on a 17-4 run to go up 44-36. Winkel returned late in the third and avoided fouling out to lead the Garrigan comeback, finishing with 22 points on 10-for-14 shooting and 14 rebounds.

Koppes paced Springville with 21 points.
