Tipping off into the first five minutes, both teams struggled with early fouls and turnovers, before settling into a composed groove.

Anderson took charge of the run, capturing eight of the Eagles' 11 points in under three minutes.
On the half, Anderson led all scorers with 15 points and four assists, while Zach Curran (6'6''-F) followed with seven points and five boards. Justin Smith (6'3''-F) showed speed on the court, seizing two steals to help his team finish out the half with a 35-34 lead over the Terriers.
Thomas was led by Jordan DeRosby (6'0''-PG) at the half, netting 11 points along with his four rebounds. Teammates, Tyheem Simon (6'3''-G) and Carlos Gonzalez (6'7''-C) split six points each. Both teams showed dominance under the hoop defensively as Thomas grabbed 18 total rebounds (16 defensive) to Husson's 19 rebounds (14 defensive).
With a slow start into the second half, the Eagles lost their lead until a combo play by Husson's Justin Smith and Justin Martin (6'5''-F) in the sixth minute helped reclaim the lead over Thomas, 45-44. Terriers' Gonzalez retaliated with a layup, quickly followed up by Eli Itkin (6'4''-F) draining a deep 3-pointer to start a 12-1 run for the Eagles over the next two and half minutes. Worcester contributed five points to the run, helping Husson capture a ten point lead, the largest score gap of the game so far, 57-47.
The Eagles continued to separate themselves from the Terriers in the final seven minutes of the game, as Worcester commanded the floor from behind the arc, crushing three 3-pointers to increase Husson's lead to a 20-point cushion with 3:42 left on the clock. There was no catching up for Thomas, as the Eagles seized back-to-back conference championship for the ninth time in program history with by a final score of 89-67.
