After only scoring 3 points in the first quarter, the offense was able to find more success in the next three quarters and overtime. Leading scorer Grant Jablonski lead the Cavemen with 14 points. Jablonski made a huge 3-point shot in the final minute of regulation to take the lead by 2, but the Warriors were able to make 2 free throws to force overtime. In Overtime, it was back and forth until Sam Shively made a clutch 3-pointer to give the Cavemen a 1 point lead in the final 1:30. The Cavemen were able to stop the Warriors on the next possession and Junior Raheem Braiton stepped up to the free throw line and knocked down 4 consecutive free throws to secure the victory. Braiton played key minutes in the game and ended up with 10 points off the bench.
