Simpson scored 17 points in the second half as the Spartans (1-2) pulled away from the Braves after a close first half. He tied a career-high with four 3-pointers and was perfect on all six of his free throws. Leading 31-27 at the start of the second half, the Spartans extended their lead to 36-30 before the Braves (2-2) pulled to within 36-33 on a free throw by Mike Robinson with 15:55 left. That was as close as the D-II school would get. Simpson started a 10-0 run with a shot from long range and Alyosius Henry followed with a big dunk to give the Spartans a 41-33 lead.
