The win was in large part thanks to Chris Boekhorst, who lead the Lions in scoring with 34 points in the game. Two other players, Gunner Tarver, and Coy Collins, also finished in double figures, finishing with 11 and 10 points, respectively.

Other scorers for the Lions include Colby McCoy and Andrew Redburn, who finished with 8 points, David Whitworth had 7, and lastly Colton McGill ended the game with 2 points.

The Lions also shot 3-3 from the free-throw line, which can be pivotal in late, close-game situations.
