Both teams would go back and forth the majority of the game until Pensacola would finally put Polk away. In overtime PSC would out score Polk 9-7 in OT with Shawdarius Cowart hitting the winning bucket with 2.9 left on the clock. Polk State would try to tie it up but the ensuing inboud pass would be intercepted to end the game.
