In the first half, the home team connected on seven shots from long distance as they quickly seized the lead. Alice Lloyd received 11 first half points from Eagle guard Austin Crisp, but the Bulldogs entered the locker room with a 45-36 advantage.
In the second half, sparked by 12 points from forward Tyler Rogers, ALC quickly cut into the lead; the deficit stayed within 2 and 5 points the entire way. Unfortunately Eagle foul trouble proved costly as several players were saddled with foul difficulties. The game turned on two late turnovers from Alice Lloyd combined with two big baskets by WU. These plays sealed the deal for Wilberforce.
