Riverside wanted this. They scored first and held the lead for 32 minutes. They did not lose it until when Indiana scored to make it 42-41 in the overtime. Indiana showed "never say die" attitude as they kept coming back and tied it at the buzzer. It was a game of lots of patience, aggressive defense and perhaps too many three-point attempts. Riverside certainly did a brilliant job containing Cody Crace by implementing tight defense in the paint.  It was 27-24 at the end of third quarter as it was continuous defensive battle with both teams combining to score only 11 points. Riverside, behind Noah Valencia, took a 38-32 lead but Indiana never gave up. In the waning minutes of the regulation, each teams were being carefully taking timeouts to kill momentum. Riverside missed a number of free throws that could have sent game away. On the final possession of the game, Riverside's defense fell apart that left a huge hole to the hoop for Indiana as they tied the game at 41-41. It was overtime and Indiana finally got the lead at 3 minute mark with 42-41 margin. In the last seconds, Riverside could have finished the game but blew it due to five-second violation penalty but on the other side, Crace committed an offensive foul. Riverside had the last possession but they did not prevail. The final score was 47-45. Crace led with 15 points, nine coming in the second half and overtime, and 8 rebounds. Valencia and Omar Alzen scored 11 and 12 points respectively for Riverside.
