The game started with Albertus coming out aggressive on both sides of the ball but could not build momentum during the first 5 minutes of the half, and neither could Colby-Sawyer. During those first 5 minutes, Albertus scored more points, but Colby-Sawyer would respond with a basket of their own and ensure they would not go down early into the game.

Albertus was able to score with ease and increase their lead while preventing Colby-Sawyer from being able to respond. Albertus led by 36 after the 1st half but were not satisfied since they scored 37 more points during the first 10 minutes of the 2nd half, while Colby-Sawyer only was able to put up 19 points. Eventually, both sides sat their starters since they knew the game was over. The last time both teams met, Albertus won by a score of 123-94. Many expected Albertus to get over 100 pts, but not emphatically as they did during this game.


The game overall was fun to experience in person as the crowd was into it the entire time and did anything to try to rattle Colby-Sawyer. The game was physical. Albertus’s largest lead during the game was 51, and they held this point differential for most of the 2nd half. With 42 seconds to go in the game, first-year Jarrell Petteway hit a 3-pointer. The shoot broke Albertus’s record for most points in a game when they reached 128.
