The Oilers and Dragons battled back and forth all game before Findlay outscored Tiffin 19-9 in the final quarter to claim the victory.

The Oilers shot 44.7 percent (21-of-47) from the floor and hit 31-of-39 (79.5%) attempts from the free throw line in the game. They also recorded 14 steals and held a 42-25 advantage on the boards.
