Minnesota Morris kept the pressure on as the second half started as the Cougars increased their lead to 12 at 37-25. NCU closed the gap to nine, but Morris responded by going on a 15-5 run to take a 58-39 lead with 10:10 left in the game. It was the largest lead of the game for the Cougars as the Rams never responded.
