"Frustrating night," said Monett coach Ty Goetz. "Give Aurora credit. They came in here ready to play. We missed some shots in the first quarter that could have changed the game. We just got beat."
Aurora used a 12-0 run in the first period to take an 18-8 lead after one period.
The Houn' Dawgs continued the momentum into the second quarter and held a 28-21 edge at halftime.
Any thoughts of a Monett comeback were erased in the third period as the visitors outscored the purple and gold 17-4 to lead 45-25.
The Houn' Dawgs won the fourth period 15-9.
Scoring for Monett: Kyle Woods, 16 points; Aaron Patton, 6; Caleb Blue, 5; Elijah George, 3; Sean Rosebaugh, 2; and Quincy Jackson, 1.
