A Gary Williams, Jr. (Marist/Jersey City, NJ) trey gave the Knights a 23-22 advantage with 5:13 remaining in the first half before Delaware Valley responded by outscoring Berkeley, 19-8, the rest of the way to take a 10-point advantage into the break.

Delaware Valley upped the lead to 16 midway through the second stanza, but the Knights would not go away and a Daniel Waynick (Hightstown/East Windsor, NJ) layup made it a 75-66 ballgame with 6:04 on the clock. The Aggies scored eight of the next 12, but Berkeley responded with five straight to pull to within eight, 83-75, with 3:09 remaining. Delaware Valley finally put the game out of reach by scoring nine of their next 11 points at the free throw line where they enjoyed an eye-opening 49 to 19 free throw attempt advantage. Delaware would outscore the Knights 37 to 13 at the free throw line.
