Sikeston was led by Sherwin Jones' 17 points. Ashton Hubbard and Tommie Strong each had 10 points.

"We came out aggressive and I'm proud of how they played," said Sikeston coach Chris Sarakas. "They stuck with it all year and worked hard. Hopefully they'll build on this win and learn from it and get something positive out of it."
