Chadron entered the title game undefeated and was the No. 1 seed.

Chadron led 38-36 at halftime, as they shot 12 of 21 from the field, including six of 12 on three-pointers in the first half. However, Chadron (26-1) was just six of 17 from the field in the second half, hit one of six three-pointers and committed 12 turnovers.
