TTP would again rely on their hot shooting and chemistry, having played together for a number of seasons. In the end, TTP would use their experience to  take a 74-63 victory.

The top two teams in Div II faced off and require overtime to settle their bout. In a very heated, and rightfully so, game, both teams would exchange baskets for the entire game with neither team gaining an advantage. The teams would end regulation in a 76-76 deadlock requiring an extra three minutes to decide a winner. The Party would be the only ones to score in the extra period and taking the 82-76 decision preserving their undefeated record.
