Junior Colin Farrell hit one to cut the deficit to 51-49 and after Sheridan made one of two free throws with 38 seconds left, CBA junior Mike White missed an open look with 16 seconds left.

Ruoff missed all three attempts and Pirie hit a pair of free throws to make it 60-56.

Farrell scored to cut the deficit back to two and CBA got a chance to tie the game but Farrell could not convert on his potential game-tying attempt. Anderson hit one of two free throws with two seconds left and Farrell's half-court heave at the buzzer hit the front rim.
