Hughes (24-4) received 20 points apiece from Giovanni Santiago and D.J. Brewton. A.J. Smith added 18 points.
It was the first time in six postseason matchups the Rams didn’t post a blowout win. Trotwood will take an 18-game win streak into the final four, its fourth and all since the 2006 Rams were runner-up in D-I.
