Torenio Davis had seven points in the first quarter.

Tied at 50 in the final minute, a three-point shot with about 20 seconds left. The ball was knocked out of bounds, Waco got it back with six seconds left.

Following time outs by both teams, a jumper hit the rim, spun, and rolled in. BC lost 52-50 as well as a chance to clinch second seed.

RJ Barnes brought the crowd to their feet with this dunk.
