Darius Perry was on a mission to take his team to a championship victory from the opening tip. He created scoring opportunities for his teammates and hit 3 three pointers in the early going to get Wheeler off to a great start. Montez Mathis would also get off to a hot start for the Patriots of John Caroll knocking down 2 three pointers and finished the half with 12 points. Wheeler would go into the half with a 36-24 lead. The second half would see Wheeler continue to cause problems with their defense creating more scoring opportunities. Montez Mathis and Immanuel Quickley would help the Patriots cut it to 6 points with 5:05 left with a couple of baskets but the Wildcats would be too tough down the stretch and the Patriots would not get any closer. The Wildcats would win their first ever Chick-Fil-A Classic Championship!
Wheeler was led by Darius Perry (15 points and 5 assists) and Jordan Tucker (13 points and 5 rebounds).
