The game of the tournament Thursday morning became the title match by Saturday afternoon with the Matadors (4-8) laying claim to the championship plaque after defeating the Bulldogs 64-59 in overtime at the Navarro Events Center.

Up to this point, the Matadors have had a handful of practices as a full unit, said head coach Guy Nowlin, but he credits the competition for giving his squad additional game time together — especially with district around the corner.
