The fifth game of the day showcased a pair of teams representing both coasts, as Cannon School took on Prolific Prep. From the jump, 2024 Austin Swartz showcased his confident play style and helped the Cougars open up a 10-2 lead early. The Crew would respond quickly, however, as Prolific Prep began to thrive in transition. A pair of the 3-pointers and highlight-worthy dunks helped turn the pendulum in favor of The Crew and 2023 Michael Nwoko's forceful play inside assisted his team to a four-point lead at the end of the quarter. The Cougars would battle back in the following period, as Swartz continued to hit high-difficulty shots to inch Cannon within three points at the break.

The Crew would punch first out of the break, as Prolific Prep opened up the later half with dunks on its first two possessions. But the Cougars would claw their way back and a 2025 Isiah Henry 3-point make with the third quarter clock expiring cut Prolific Prep's lead to two points. 2023 Trey Green would heat up in the final quarter of play, as the Xavier commit found success from behind the arc to keep the Cougars' comeback attempt at bay. Despite 2023 Aden Holloway fouling out midway through the fourth quarter, The Crew remained composed and prevailed, 83-65.
