The Kokomo Wildkats recovered quickly from their opening-round loss in the IHSAA Hall of Fame Classic tournament on Dec. 30, returning that evening for a consolation match against the Brownsburg Bulldogs. The Kats took the contest, 87-58.

Flory Bidunga, Karson Rogers, and Zion Bellamy led Kokomo as they have for much of the season. Bidunga led Kokomo with 23 points on 9-11 shooting to go with 12 rebounds and a pair of blocks.

Rogers had a nearly perfect evening, pouring in 22 points on 11 of 12 from the field. He added five boards. Bellamy was good for 12 points and six assists.
