Centreville played solid basketball for three quarters and led Silliman 37-31 at the end of three quarters. Unfortunately, the Tigers were unable to close out the game because of turnovers and poor shooting.

Led by Riley Sones and Peyton Moody, the Wildcats snatched victory from the jaws of defeat by outscoring the Tigers 16-6 in the fourth quarter. Sones finished with 20 points and Moody added 12 points.
