The Norse entered the game tied with Wright State. The Raiders beat Green Bay, 68-64.

Brock Stull hit a 3 with under 11 minutes left to give the Panthers a 39-36 lead, but McDonald made three straight field goals to give the Norse a 42-39 advantage, and after Bryce Nze's layup, Tyler Sharpe hit back-to-back 3s to make it 48-41.
