Grand Junction played well at times and had a 16-9 lead when Victor Woldruff hit a 3-pointer at the first-quarter buzzer.

After Beau Thornton scored a layup, the Tigers' lead was 24-19 in the second quarter.

The Bears then caught fire from the outside and tied the game at 29-29 late in the second, and then scored back-to-back 3-pointers in the final 10 seconds to take a 32-26 halftime lead.
