Brett Mitchell next turned a blocked shot into a fast-break basket, giving St. Francis a 5-0 lead after the first minute of play.  Alemany answered, but a 16-3 run by the Knights that stretched into the first minute of the second quarter gave St. Francis a substantial lead. At the end of the run, Jenkins hit a 3-point basket with one second left in the first quarter, then struck again from behind the three point line on the opening possession of the second quarter to give St. Francis a 21-11 lead.  The Knights hit 10 3-point baskets on the night, including six in the first half that accounted for a majority of their points.  After trailing 31-23 at the end of the half, Alemany (6-12, 1-4) used their half-court offense to produce easy baskets and cut the lead. The Indians went on a 8-0 run following an initial basket, to pull to within two points, 33-31, with 5:46 left in the third quarter.  Alemany pulled to within one basket of a tie with Alemany 11 times in the second half, but hot outside shooting by the Knights allowed St. Francis to retain its lead.
