Eight players in the game saw more than 40 minutes of playing time (four on each team). Each team also had five players score in double figures, while both teams finished with an identical 53 rebounds.
A Reynolds Coliseum record was set with a combined 18 blocks between the two clubs, including 12 for the Pack, the second-best figure in school history.
