The third quarter the Cougars outscored the Wolverines 22-12, but the Wolverines still held the lead at 60-49.

In a heated fourth quarter, the teams were very nearly into overtime with the fans biting their nails. The game finally ended with the UVU Wolverines at 70 points and the Chicago State Cougars with 65 points.
