Edgewood College's (0-2) only lead of the game lasted for just 15 seconds as a Mueller layup at the 19:16 mark answered the first basket of the game by the Eagles.

A steal by Alex Olson led to a 3-pointer by Laihinen that put UW-Oshkosh up 5-2 with 18:48 left in the first half. The Titans held the lead the rest of the game.

A basket by Alex Olson gave UW-Oshkosh a 30-16 lead with 8:02 remaining in the opening period, but the Eagles responded with a seven-point run to cut their deficit in half.
