Quarterfinals are underway.

Oak Hill (Va.) 81, ‘Iolani 58 — The Raiders took care of the ball and muscled up inside, but had no way to stop Quinn Cook. The Duke-bound point guard rained in six treys and finished with 31 points and seven assists in the win.

Dr. Phillips (Fla.) 63, Wheeler (Ga.) 62 — Darius Andrews’ layup with 5 seconds left, off a dish from Shane Larkins, gave the Panthers a win in a frantic finish.
