The Railsplitters, ranked 25th, improve to 12-4 overall and 7-3 in the SAC, while the Catawba Indians fall to 10-6 and 4-6.

Lincoln Memorial went on to build an 18-point bulge and took a 45-31 lead to the break. Catawba scored the first basket of the second half to close the gap to a dozen, but LMU stretched the lead to 26 over the first 10 minutes of the final half.
