The Chargers were on from the opening tip, bolting ahead 20-6 at the midway point of the 1st half. Tiffin responded with a 6-0 run to cut their deficit to 20-12, but Hillsdale finished the half on a 29-11 run to hold a 49-23 lead at the half.
Hillsdale held a lead in every major statistical category, and showed their depth with a 26-5 lead in bench points. Tiffin's defense put pressure on Hillsdale, trying to force turnovers with a full court trap, but the Chargers were flawless in the half, committing zero turnovers.
Tiffin opened the 2nd half with a 9-0 run to make it a 49-32 game with 17:56 remaining. After a Hillsdale timeout, the Chargers regrouped and pushed their lead back to 22 points with a pair of triples. Tiffin could never get any closer than 15 points, never fully recovering from their stagnant 1st half.
