In the end, Dane Harvey hit 2 foul shots with 1.2 seconds left and the Indians pulled out the 39 to 38 win.

Coach Jeremy Hann commented “Ward was in foul trouble all night and when he finally fouled out, not having our Point Guard started to show itself in the 4th. Our boys showed poise though, they could have folded up but they fought it to the final seconds to overcome adversity”. Dane Harvey led the Indians with 10 points, 6 rebounds, 2 blocks, and 2 steals.
