Kyle Ferreira recorded his third career double-double. He was the team's third leading scorer with 16 points and added 10 rebounds. Palmer Chaplin was the fourth Kingsmen in double-digits with 10 points, including some crucial free throws down the final stretch of the game.

Cal Lutheran jumped all over Redlands to start the game and was up 14-2 after a three-pointer by Ferreira. The Bulldogs tried to cut in the deficit and were able to cut into it a little bit. After two made free throws from Cole, CLU had an 18-11 lead. A little bit later, CLU used a 6-0 run to go up 11, 27-16, after a layup from Connor Cole. Michael Wadsworth got into the scoring fun and made a layup while being fouled. He made the free throw to complete the three-point play and CLU had a 30-19 lead with 8:01 left in the half. The Kingsmen held on to the double-digit advantage and were up 42-32 at the half.

The Violet and Gold opened the second half with five straight points and increased its lead to 15, 47-32. Every time Redlands got within single digits, Cal Lutheran was there to answer the call. With 8:39 left in the game, UR made it a two-possession game at 69-63. Jerry Lawson stopped the run with a layup. With 5:14 left, Moffett was fouled as he made a layup.
