In the first half, the Falcons led by as much as 15 points by playing their typical style of running the court and stunning their foe with a string of twos and threes. Just when it seemed like Pfeiffer would completely run away with the game, Anderson managed to keep Pfeiffer scoreless for two minutes while tallying eight points for their own gain. Anderson chipped away at their deficit until half time when they went into the locker room down by only one at 57-56.
Pfeiffer began the second half strong, going up by 18 points in the first six minutes. Once again, Anderson whittled away at the Falcon lead and for the first time since the first two minutes of the game, regained the lead 103-104 with 1:37 left in the game. Pfeiffer remained scoreless while Cornwell and Young each sank free throws, taking the score to 103-106. Pfeiffer sophomore Duke Johnson (Ville Platte, LA) made a field goal to put Pfeiffer with one. Sophomore Jarret Johnson (Greensboro, NC) followed with another free throw made for the Trojans to make it 105-107. The home crowd went wild when Anderson was charged with goal tending and the game was tied 107-107 after sophomore Chris Donald (Randolph, MA) released a shot with one second left in regulation.
Unfortunately for the Pfeiffer Pfanatics, the Falcons were unable to push through overtime to victory. Pfeiffer and Anderson traded the lead several times with Anderson taking the final advantage with 23 seconds left in the overtime period. Anderson made a field goal and two foul shots to bring the end score to 119-122.
