Highlights: The second meeting of the tournament between the two teams failed to resemble the 62-61 Bison Red win in pool play. The Crusaders tied the game at 28 with 12:23 left, but Bison Red went on runs of 12-3 and 19-2 to pull away. Pete Uhing and Taylor Price each scored 15 points and combined to make 6 of 6 from 3-point range in the second half. All of Uhing's points came in the second half while Price scored just two points in the first half. Greg Smith drained back-to-back 3s in the second half to help erase a four-point Crusaders' lead. Bison Red was 8 for 9 from beyond the arc in the second half. The win gave Bison Red its second straight Alegent Health title and its third in the last four years.
