The Pioneers improve to 17-4 overall and 8-1 in the SAC, while Catawba falls to 8-14 and 3-6.

Helgi Magnusson (Reykjavik, ICELNAD) hit a three with 4:31 remaining in the half to make the score 29-26, but that would be the last three-pointer on the night for the Indians. Tusculum followed with a 9-0 run and led 38-30 at the break. The Pioneers dominated the second half and built its lead to as many as 30 points in the final 10 minutes.
