Joining Juiston on the all-tournament team are sophomore Samajae Haynes-Jones (6'0''-G) and freshman J.J. Rhymes (6'4''-G). Head coach Steve Eck was named the Coach of the Tournament. This is Eck's first Division I national championship after winning won in Division I with Redlands Community College. This was Eck's first Divisoin I national title game victory in three tries - one at Redlands and two at Hutchinson. To get to the 2017 national championship, the Blue Dragons had to defeat three Florida teams. Hutch defeated St. Petersburg (95-78) in the second round, Northwest Florida State (88-79) in the semifinals and Eastern Florida State in the championship game.

The Blue Dragons were 34 of 69 from the field (49.3 percent), hitting 5 of 16 from 3-point range and 11 of 16 from the foul line. The Blue Dragons were out-rebounded 49-45, but had only had only 10 turnovers to 29 assist. Defensively, Hutchinson limited Eastern Florida State to 29.3 percent from the field (22 of 75). The Titans hit 6 of 22 from 3-point range and were 8 of 11 from the foul line. Eastern Florida State turned the ball over times.
