Alfred University got out to an early 7-0 lead over the Green and Gold on Tuesday evening. The lead for the Saxons would grow to double-digits halfway through the first behind their three-point shooting. Alfred was 7-17 in the half from three while Keuka was 0-7. Alfred University led Keuka College 35-20 at the half.

The Saxons came out in the second half and grew their lead to 19 points at 43-24 with 16:39 left to play. However, the Wolves would not go away. A 7-0 run for the Wolves narrowed the gap to 12 points. The lead would sink to single-digits following a jumper by Sam Brown halfway through the second. Alfred responded with a three but Brown answered right back with a three of his own. Keuka would get the margin down to seven points with seven minutes left to play, but that would be as close as Keuka College would make it. Alfred University held off the Wolves comeback and continued onto the 72-55 victory.
