Midwestern State (4-2) was led offensively by 18 points from Adiodun Adegoke, while Devante Pullum had 14 and Xavier Blackburn scored 13. 

Both teams traded leads early, but back-to-back jumpers from Taevaunn Prince gave the Lions a 10-6 lead with 15:45 to go in the first half. A jumper from Cornelius with 11:34 to go in the half gave the Lions a 18-14 lead and the score was 23-14 after a jumper and a three from Barlow with 10:48 to go in the half. 

Midwestern took a 28-27 lead after a pair of freebies from Pullum with 7:19 to go in the half, and led 33-27 with 4:05 to go. The Mustangs took a 36-33 lead into the locker room at the break. 

Cornelius tied the game at 38 with a free-throw with 16:39 to go in the second half and a free-throw from Brandon Pines made the score 39-38 Lions with Lions, but a three from the Mustangs' Derrell Gibbs made the score 43-41 MSU with 14:56 left to go in the game.
