With the win, Baldwin finished 2-0 in pool play and will play Friday against Louisburg, which emerged with the same record from its pool with a 56-37 victory against Anderson County.

Behind eight first-half points from senior forward Michael Burton, the Bulldogs built 26-8 second-quarter lead before Iola scored the last eight points of the half to cut into Baldwin’s halftime lead.

Iola senior guard Trenton Latta scored five-straight points in a Mustang run early in the third quarter to reduce Baldwin’s lead to nine midway through the third quarter before Bulldog sophomore Jackson Barth buried two-straight three-pointers to increase the lead back to 15 points.
