- In the third, the Lions came out firing opening up the half on a 15-3 run to take a 10 point lead behind a pair of Toner three pointers and three Boyle jumpers. The lions opened up their biggest lead of the game in the third to 15, but Lasell was able to cut the lead to twelve at 46-34 after three quarters.
- The Lions defense held up in the fourth quarter, only allowing 14 points over the final quater. The Lions scored 14 points themselves, and closed out the game with a 12 point victory over the Lasers.
