CHAMPIONSHIP: Valley 59, Dowling 49

In an all West Des Moines battle for the title, Valley and Dowling played a tightly contested game, before a late surge by the Tigers -- and some clutch free throw shooting by Turner Scott -- sealed the victory.

The second half was more electric, and Valley's 2016 guard Pete Economos was an unsung hero, knocking in multiple 3s, and coming up big on defense to aid the team to victory.

Carlo Marble's back-to-back 3s were thwarted by Sam Ingoli's eight straight points for Dowling, but the two were both marvelous in the second half.

Turner Scott, though not hitting from outside, was the best player on the floor in this one. And between breaking ankles, and running the offense with great precision, Scott proved why he could be an all-state point guard next season.
