Middlebury led almost the entire first half, going up by 11 points on two occasions, before the hosts battled back to take a one-point lead (25-24) at the break. There were 13 lead changes in the second half, with neither team leading by more than four points, and the 58-all deadlock at the end of regulation was the eighth tie score of the game.
