The Tribe locked down ODU big man Gerald Lee in the second half, holding him to only six points in the final 20 minutes, and were led offensively by Laimus Kisielius and Danny Sumner. Nathan Mann hit the game-winning three-pointer (above) with just over seven seconds left in the game.

Kisielius and Sumner once again led the Tribe on the offensive side of the ball, scoring 23 and 19 points, respectively. The Tribe’s defense locked down the potent VCU offense down the stretch, and Kisielius put in a bank shot in the lane with three seconds left to score the game-winner.

Down only one point at the half, the Tribe began to show its fatigue at having to play four tournament games in as many days. Behind the play of seniors Folarin Campbell and Will Thomas, Mason began to pull away, despite the best efforts of Kisielius, who finished with 22 points.
