Momentum stuck with the Saints in the second quarter as they expanded their lead to as large as 21 while knocking down eight of their 14 shots to take a 35-16 lead going into halftime.

The Blue Raiders begin to trim the lead, outscoring Thomas More 27-18 in the third quarter. Oldham knocked down back-to-back three points to get the high scoring quarter underway for Lindsey Wilson. The Blue Raiders hit five three-pointers in the third quarter to trail by 10 going into the final quarter of play. Lindsey Wilson continued to fight, pulling as close as seven points in the final quarter. Despite the 27-point quarter, the first half troubles proved to be too much as the Blue Raiders fell to the Saints 72-63.
