The Jaguars, ranked No. 2 this season behind Maranatha Academy, haven't lost a game since the Class A title game of the 2010-11 season, a streak of 34 games.

James Kuefler scored 16 points with 8 rebounds, and Billy Borgerding had 15 points and 6 rebounds.

The Jags were just 3 of 15 from 3-point range with the 6-foot-7 Borgerding draining all three of those.

"We've got to find some inside scoring but we'll be a good team," said Dave Montbriand, who starts his 20th season as a head coach at BBE.

Borgerding, Kuefler and Brian Goodwin are all returning starters from last year's championship team.

The Jaguars play ACGC in the Invite's title game today, after the KMS vs. West Central third-place game starting at 6 p.m.
