St. Olaf answered by going on a 6-0 in the next 60 seconds to tie the game at 8 after Justin Pahl picked up a steal and a bucket as the Oles put on the full-court pressure.

St. Olaf took a 13-12 lead on a 3-pointer by NathanKuck before the Vikings would go on a 10-2 run over the next three minutes to take a 22-15 lead with 8:31 to play in the first half. Augustana pushed its lead to 28-17 after two fastbreak buckets by Taylor.

The Oles were able to claw back and make it a five-point game with Pahl making three free throws in a 3-pointer but Jansen stole the momentum back with a one-handed dunk pushing Augustana's lead to 30-23.

That started a 14-4 run for the Vikings over the final five and a half minutes of the first half as Augustana would go into the locker room with a 42-28 lead. The Vikings shot 54 percent from the field in the half, including 33 percent from 3-point range.

Jansen led all players with 11 points and seven rebounds in the first half. Schilling added eight points and four rebounds. Pahl and Nielsen led St. Olaf in the first half with nine points each.

Pahl came out with a hot hand in the second half, scoring nine straight points to cut Augutana's lead to six at 42-36. That is all the closer St. Olaf was able to get over the first 10 minutes of the second half as Augustana was able to build a 15-point lead at 61-46 with 8:44 remaining in the game.
