Down by 16 with 12 minutes to play, the Raiders closed the night on a 31-14 run, capped by Trey Calvin’s jumper in the lane with 10.5 seconds left that proved to be the game-winner.

The Raiders enter the NCAA Championship with a 21-13 overall mark and have won either the Horizon League regular season or tournament in each of the last five seasons.
