In a back-and-forth second quarter, a Parker jumper for the Vikings tied the game up a 63-63 with 1:55 left to play in regulation, but both teams went scoreless down the stretch and the game went to overtime.

After the teams exchanged buckets to start the extra session, Bamforth drilled a 3-pointer at the 3:59 mark of overtime to give Weber State a 68-65 lead, and it would not surrender that advantage the rest of the way.
