Neither team shot the ball well but the Vikings managed to outshoot their counterpart at the free throw line and controlled the boards to earn a hard fought victory.
In a physical contest that saw a total of 48 fouls called, Valley City State converted 24 of 35 free throws (68.6%) in the game to the Hard Rockers 15-26 (57.7%) shooting from the line while the Vikings out rebounded SD Mines 41-35.
