On the following possession, point-guard Corin Parmley dribbled down the court and made an uncontested 3-point shot, giving Marion the lead.
Jesse Lewman stole the ball on the next Ell-Saline possession. Later the ball was stolen back by Ell-Saline with a foul called against Marion. Ell-Saline made both free throws. With time running out Ell-Saline fouled Marissa Jacobson with less than a second left on the clock. Jacobson missed the free throw and Marion escaped with a one-point victory.
