The Wolves fought hard early in the game on Tuesday to contest Wells College's three-point shooting. The first 15 points for the Express was off of the three ball. However, the Wolves had an 11-3 run to take a 20-15 lead with 12 minutes left in the half. Wells College worked the Wolves advantage down and took the lead at 6:17 with a layup. Cliff Stevens quickly answered with an offensive rebound and tip-in to give the Wolves the lead right back. The Green and Gold scored the final five points of the half to lead 41-34 at the break.

Keuka College maintained their lead for the first part of the second, but Wells began to cut into the margin. A layup by the Express gave Wells a 50-49 lead with 10 minutes left to play. Their lead would grow to three-points, but back-to-back baskets by Dylan Doupe and Trevor Powell pushed the lead back to the Wolves. Once again, the three-point shooting of Wells proved key as the Express took the lead at 58-56. Trevor Powell responded with a three on the next possession and Keuka College would not surrender the lead for the final six minutes of the game. Starting with Powell's three, Keuka College would outscore Wells College 18-5 to end the game with the 74-63 North Eastern Athletic Conference victory.
