B-CC went into half-time trailing 31-27. Junior Malik Raheem nailed a running jump shot from just inside the 3-point arc as time expired to pull the Barons to within 4 points with 2 quarters remaining.

For the 2nd game in a row, the Barons made their move in the 3rd quarter. Junior Miles English scored inside to tie the game at 35 midway through the 3rd quarter, and junior Jerome Hilliard gave the Barons their first lead since the 1st quarter, at 37-35, on the Barons next possession. B-CC increased its lead to 6 points, at 43-37, heading into the 4th quarter.
