The Pacers went on a 7-0 run only to be followed by six straight points by the Toppers to knot the game at 23. As the seconds closed before the half, Dalton Tingle gave they hosts the lead, 25-23.

After the halftime break, Switz used streaks of nine and 10 straight points to take control of the game by 20 points.  A stifling defense along with cold shooting by Shawe helped the Pacers outscore the Hilltoppers 22-6 in the third stanza. The third quarter closed with host team on top, 47-29.

Even though Shawe was able to get some scoring early in the fourth, Switz did not relinquish the double-digit lead. The strong three-point shooting continued as the Pacers hit 6 of 13 threes in the second half, three in each period. Rebounding also played a big factor allowing multiple second chance opportunities for the Pacers.  The team totalled 20 offensive boards as they outrebounded the Hilltoppers 47-23.
