The game was a heated battle, with both teams combining for 50 personal fouls and 60-free-throw shots.

Forward Jarnell Stokes led the Volunteers in all statistical categories with 21 points, 10 rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block. Guard Darius Thompson contributed with 16 points and five rebounds off the bench.
