On the first day of the tournament the boys played against the #1 seed, Douglas. The dragons won 66-59. The following day the boys played Byng and pulled out another win by one point with a score of 48-49, taking them to the championship. Saturday the boys played in the championship game against Okemah and became champions of the Byng Winter Classic. Jake Berrey was voted into the All Tournament team and Garrett Galyean was voted MVP of the tournament.  This was a big accomplishment for the dragons!
