Lull finished the game with 26 points and 16 rebounds after making the basket, as well as the ensuing free throw after he was fouled, to give Rolling Hills Prep (6-6) the thrilling victory.

“He played with a lot of energy and was dominant in the paint, converting his finishes and converting at the free throw line,” Rolling Hills Prep coach Mark Fancher said of Lull. “We win and lose with his performances.”

Lull was named tournament MVP after averaging 26 points and 16 rebounds over the four games to lead Rolling Hills Prep to its first tournament title in a decade.
