Wilson Central ended their season in the first round of the AAA State Tournament Wednesday, falling 56-36 to Brentwood.

Brentwood put the game out of reach in the third. Wilson Central put a little pressure to start the quarter, and cut the lead to eight points, but the Bruins once again closed the quarter in full control, going up 46-25 into the final quarter. 

Jacob Williams closed out his Wildcat career with a double-double, 15 points and 11 rebounds. 

The Wildcats finished the season 26-7.
