Dalton State would end the first half up 40-35.

In the second half, Dalton State would come out bringing the same ferocious D, taking the Rams offense out of rhythm and causing turnovers.  Seniors Reed Dungan, Carnilious Simmons, Benat Hevia, and Isaiah Box shot above 45% from the field to go out with a bang and get the win over the Mobile Rams, 79-61.
