LOCATION: Aurora, Illinois - Lancaster Court in Thornton Gymnasium
RECORDS: Aurora University 19-8; Benedictine University 17-10

- The Spartans found themselves trailing 11-7 early in the game as both teams traded baskets and the lead early on.
- A three-ball from freshman Justin Wierzgac (6'7''-F) and jumper from Marcus Myers (6'0''-PG) gave the Spartans a 12-7 lead just two minutes after the four-point deficit.
- BU grabbed the lead back shortly after and with 5:05 left in the first-half, AU trailed by five, 27-22.
- The Spartans finished the half on a 5-2 run with all five coming from Max Vickers (6'4''-F) and trailed heading to the half, 33-32.
- The second-half opened with AU coming out cold from the field and BU built their largest lead of the game with 18:25 still to play at 38-32.
- Three balls from Wierzgac and Tyler Carlson (6'3''-F-96) fueled a 6-0 AU run and the game was quickly back tied at 38 with 16:33 to go.
- Over the next 11 minutes, the teams went at each other like a contest between longtime rivals would be expected to go. And with 6:00 left to play, AU trailed by four at 62-58.
- On the following possession, freshman Garrett Hoffman drained a three and with a pair of Marcus Myers free throws on the next possession, AU led for the first time since 13:46 of the first-half.
- The AU run continued with a Tyler Carlson steal and score and a Marcus Myers jumper in the lane.
- The Myers jumper with 4:25 to play pushed him past 1,000 career points in his two seasons as a Spartan. He becomes the 33rd member of the AU men's basketball 1,000 point club.
- The 67-62 lead was the Spartans largest of the game.
- AU maintained the lead down the stretch but the Eagles of Benedictine pulled within one at 72-71 with 1:13 to play.
