A pair of three-pointers by Logan Rezac (Jr., Andover) and Kaleb Feahn (Jr., Waseca), and a jumper from Marten Morem (So., Caledonia) brought the scoring difference to five at 54-49 with 11:17 left in the game, but the Oles answered with 12-1 run to create separation and secure the series sweep.

The Gusties shot 44.4 percent from the floor and made 11-of-28 threes. The Oles shot 51.6 percent in the game, including 61.3 percent in the second half. St. Olaf also won the rebound battle 36-26.
