The teams battled through a tight first half that saw eight ties and six lead changes. Montreat held the largest lead of the opening half at 40-35 following a jumper by Jazz Cathcart (Gastonia, NC) with 2:02 remaining, but Catawba scored the final eight points of the half. The Tribe took the lead for good on a pair of free throws by Antonio Houston (Charlotte, NC) with 29 seconds left and Brian Graves (Newport News, VA) recorded a steal and layin just before the halftime buzzer for a 43-40 edge at the break.
