Bublitz joined the parade from long range and scored five-straight points to push the lead to 16-6. The host Blue Devils used a 7-1 run to close within two later in the half.

Williams hit a pair of threes down the stretch and the Pointers held a nine-point advantage at the half.

Delmore opened the second half with another three and hit his second of the period minutes later. Fredrickson got rolling moments later and hit all five of his three-pointers as UWSP maintained the lead.
