The Warriors came alive in the third quarter as Jadon Sautter and Richard Forbes began connecting on threes. Switching to man defense also helped the Warriors close the gap. Holcomb clung to a two-point lead at the end of the third.

The Warriors continued to rain threes in the fourth and took their first lead late in the fourth at 30-28. With the score tied at 33, Holcomb made one of two at the line to lead by one with under 20 seconds remaining..

Alex Schwindt capped off a thrilling fourth quarter finish with a clean shot off the baseline to put the Warriors ahead as time expired for a 35-34 win.
