Brother Martin blitzed Jesuit early, jumping out to a 29-8 lead after one quarter and it was never close. The Crusaders led 41-20 by halftime. It was 59-33 after three quarters.

Brock Ranlett led a balanced attack with 16 points and five rebounds, Corey Skillman had 14 points, TJ Small had 12 points and four rebounds and Davonn Moore added 12 points.
