A layup from Tristan Pierce brought Dubois within 7 with just 5:00 remaining in the game. Dubois would finish the game 8-8 from the charity stripe but it would prove to be insufficient as Fayette finished the game 11-11 from the line securing a 92-80 win.

Dubois' Sam Roselli (Ridgway, PA) played in his final game in a PSUD uniform. He will be greatly missed and was a true asset to the team. Roselli ends his career with a cornucopia of accolades both from the PSUAC & USCAA Div. II.
