Milnor and Oak Grove met once before this season in late January, back when the Bison were ranked number one in the state. The 5th ranked Grovers handed the defending state champs their only loss of the season and Tuesday night Milnor was hoping for a little payback.
But once again Oak Grove would make the plays they needed to make late and the Grovers moved on to the Region 1 championship with a 74-69 win.
Carter Kretchman lead Oak Grove with 29 points.
Wyatt Mund had 25 points for Milnor and Briton Bussman poured in 23 points.
