The opening matchup of the second day of King of the Bluegrass action featured out-of-state opponents Brentwood Academy (7-0) and Gainesville (6-1). The Eagles of Brentwood Academy struggled from three-point range missing four early long-range shots but used defensive pressure to take a 9-5 lead. A 5-0 run by the Red Elephants pushed Gainesville back ahead briefly before the teams swapped baskets battling to a 15-15 tie at the end of the opening quarter. The Brentwood Academy defense was too much for Gainesville to handle as the Eagles forced nine second quarter turnovers as part of a 20-5 run. A pair of late baskets by Gainesville's Bailey Minor pulled the Georgia squad back within 37-27 at halftime.

Sophomore sensation Darius Garland got hot for Brentwood Academy in the third quarter hitting four three-point goals and scoring 14 points to extend the Eagles lead back to as many as 15 points at 56-41. After nearly two minutes of scoreless action the Eagles pushed ahead to a game-high 16 point lead. Kenyon Buffen scored six straight points to fuel a 12-4 run by Gainesville midway through the fourth quarter that pulled them within six points. The Eagles struggles at the free throw line hitting on 4-of-7 in the closing 2:30 of the game but Gainesville couldn't get any closer. The Eagles advanced to the quarterfinals with a final margin of victory of 69-60.

Brentwood Academy sophomore Darius Garland led the Eagles with a game-high 24 points. Senior Parker Suedeum added 17 points for the Eagles. Gainesville had three scorers in double digits with Kenyon Buffen's 19 points leading the way.
