Down 14-17 midway through the contest, the Green Gorillas remained steadfast, slowly chipping away the lead. The quartet of Dylan Ababou, Dan Reducto, James Laput, and Ryan Monteclaro went on a wild 7-0 run to close out the game capped by the game-winning deuce by Monteclaro with 1:58 left.

Ababou led the way with six points.
