In the third game of the evening it was defending KOB finalist No.1 Taylor County (3-2) and No. 13 Central (4-2). The battle between the two led to 14 ties and 13 lead changes throughout. A quick three-pointer to open the game by Mr. Basketball candidate Quentin Goodin gave Taylor County the early 3-0 lead. The Cardinals lead lasted only two minutes when the lightning fast Yellowjackets went on a 9-0 spurt led by seven points from junior Devin Firman. David Sloan scored five straight for Taylor County to pull the score even at 12-12 but it was a late Central run that gave them a 21-16 lead at the quarter break. A 10-4 Taylor County run put the Cardinals back on top early in the second quarter for the first of six lead changes in the quarter. A pair of three-pointers in the final minute of the half sent Central to the locker room with a 40-38 lead. 

The teams exchanged baskets for the first two minutes of the half before a Derron Douglas three-pointer pushed the Central lead to 52-48. Taylor County would fight back to take the lead on a David Sloan basket with 2:38 remaining in the quarter. A 10-6 run to close the quarter sent Taylor County into the final quarter with a 63-58 lead. Domonique Gaines of Central tied the game at 65-65 less than a minute into the fourth quarter. The teams swapped the lead five times in the next two minutes. A pair of 4 point leads by each team left the game tied at 78-78 with 2:06 remaining. A pair of Devin Firman 3-pointers pushed Central ahead 86-78 with a minute remaining in the game. The Cardinals couldn't get any closer than 7 points for the remainder as Central nailed four free throws down the stretch to clinch the 90-81 upset. 

Junior Devin Firman led all Central scorers with 26 points including 6 three-point field goals. Brandon Wells added 16 points and Anthony Southers added 14 points. David Sloan led Taylor County with a tournament-high 42 points. Quentin Goodin added 27 points and 14 rebounds for the Cardinals.
