The Redhawks tied the score at 38-38 and took a 47-44 lead with a three-pointer from Sam Gullickson of Holy Angels.

The Redhawks took a 54-49 lead, but Thomas Schalk of Apple Valley scored six straight points to put 43 Hoops up 55-54. Jameson Parsons of Eagan made two free throws to expand the margin to three points. Parsons missed the front end of a one-and-one with 25.6 seconds left, but 43 Hoops grabbed the miss and Parsons was fouled with 18.5 seconds to go.
