After the game, Justin Wertner was named DII-A Mr. Basketball. Chase Hayden was voted as the tournament's most valuable player. Wertner and sophomore forward, Noah Pope, joined Hayden on the all-tournament team. After his first state title since 2010, Coach Jeff Ruffin said, "I could not be more proud of these young men, especially our four seniors that get to go out on top. Our team developed a special bond this season and they were determined to do something special."
