At Middleton, it took two overtimes, but Sugar-Salem's run at another 3A state title came to end against Timberlake.

Mardee Fillmore scored 14 points and Macey Fillmore scored 11 for the Diggers (21-2) but it wasn't enough in a 45-40 loss. It was Sugar-Salem's first loss in the first round since 2014, also in a game that pitted two state media poll ranked teams against each other on day one due to Idaho's predetermined state tournament brackets. In 2014, the then-No. 1 state media poll ranked Diggers fell 30-28 to then No. 2 ranked Filer. 

Timberlake, ranked No. 3 in the 3A state media poll, and Sugar-Salem, ranked No. 1, entered Thursday with considerable history in the 3A state tournament, with the previous five 3A state titles going to one team or the other. Thursday was also the fourth time in six years the teams have met in the 3A state tournament.

Sugar-Salem faces Kimberly today in the consolation round.
