Levi Kehr led Russellville with eight points, followed by Zach Renick with seven and Levi Anderson with six. Kehr and Kaleb Payne led rebounds with eight each, while Chandler Wolf had seven. Payne also had four assists.

"We played well defensively, but simply had far too many turnovers and our offense struggled to score," Russellville Coach Chris Leuckel said. "Both are very fixable and we will work hard to do just that."
