The 2 matchups I saw were Mill Creek vs. Franklin County and Dawson County vs. Mountain View. Here are some thoughts from those games.
The first game of the day saw Mill Creek take down Franklin County 67-58.

Wimby is known for his shooting ability, but waited until the 2nd half to put that on display. After the break,
