Wheeler wins it 71-54 as Ari Stewart finished with a couple of big dunks as the seconds wound down. Phil Taylor led Wheeler with 20 points, while Javoris Bryant paced Westlake with 17. It will be Wheeler and Milton in the 5A finals tomorrow. Both teams are from Region 6 and the Wildcats have gotten the better of the Eagles this season. Still, Milton is one of the better teams in the state athletically despite their youth. The game will likely come down to who shoots better from the outside. Milton may be more equipped to run with the Wildcats than Westlake, but even they must pick and choose the right times to do so. Sophomore guard Shannon Scott will have a lot on his shoulders.
