The Titans went 14-of-50 from the field for 28 percent shooting, 3-of-21 from deep (14 percent) and 6-of-12 from the line (50 percent).

Trailing 22-17 at halftime, the Titans used a 6-0 run to tie the contest up 25-25, but the Panthers responded with a 15-0 run to pull away.

MVP (19-5) will face either Chamberlain or St. Thomas More in the seventh-place game at noon on Saturday, while Dakota Valley (13-11) will take on the Chamberlain/St. Thomas winner for fifth-place at 1:45 p.m.
Hayden Schmidt led MVP with 15 points, while Devin Rihanek and Jacob Clark each chipped in seven points. Dihanek added a team-high seven rebounds as the Titans loss the battle of the boards 29-21.
