The Jeffs went on a 10-0 run early in the first half to lead by as much as eight before Hamilton shut-out Amherst scoring to close out the half. Pushing the scre to 50-47 Amherst heading into the locker rooms, Hamilton chipped away at the lead with the help of Amherst foul trouble. The Continentals had pulled within three before Pavelski's threes, just two of 23 hit throughout the game.
Michael Schantz led the Continenals with 27 points and 10 rebounds. Hamilton had five players in double figures, including J.J. Raedts with another double-double (12 points, 11 rebounds).
