When game time arrived, both teams were locked in, trading buckets for the entirety of the first half. At the end of the first half, SWOSU led just 35-34. 

In the second half, SWOSU would flip the script. The energy had seemed to be much higher when the two teams returned from halftime. SWOSU was forcing turnovers and pushing the ball down the court much quicker.
