However, Martinez found Beacom to score a layup off a back door cut, before Ham knocked down a trey to tie up the game, 19-19. The Yellow Jackets finished the first period on a 10-0 run to hold a five-point lead, 24-19, after 10 minutes of play.

    The Green and Gold kept up their pressure in the second quarter, scoring the first six points of the period to lead, 30-19, with 8:48 to play in the half. BHSU led NMHU, 42-29, as they entered the break.
