The Red Raiders push their win streak to 17 games and improved to 17-1 on the season. This is the longest win streak since the 2002-03 season where they won 25 straight en route to winning the 2003 NAIA Division II National Championship.
Nathan Wedel scored his ninth and final point with a three-pointer at the 5:48 mark in the first half, becoming the 45th player to score 1,000 points for his career.

Christian Korver scored all of his career-high 21 points from beyond the arc, making 7-of-11 three-pointers. Korver tied eight other NWC players, most recently done by Riley Francis, for the second most three-pointers made in a single game. Brandon Woudstra, Andrew Stimson and Ben Gerleman hold the record with eight.
