Both teams shot the ball well in the first half, with Longwood delivering on an even 50 percent of its shots (15-of-30), while Florida A&M came in just under that mark at 46.2 percent. The Lancers did knock down five 3-pointers in the first 20 minutes of play and took a slim 34-33 lead into the break.

The strong shooting continued for both squads after intermission, as the Rattlers converted 51.6 percent from the floor to force overtime. In the extra session, the two teams went back and forth with several lead changes before Longwood went up 82-81 with 01:21 remaining in extra session and did not relinquish the lead en route to the win.
