The Raiders led 15-12 after the first quarter, 25-16 at halftime, 39-24 after the third quarter and their largest lead came in the fourth quarter at 50-24 with 2:28 left after a Raiders 11-0 run to start the quarter. During that run, Miner turned a steal into a dunk at the 4:51 mark.

Brookville limited DuBois to its lowest point total in over seven years and limited the Beavers to just 34 percent (12-for-35) shooting. The Beavers were just 1-for-8 from the foul line and committed 16 turnovers.

Lennon Lindholm led the Beavers with nine points. Chooch Husted scored eight points off the bench and leading scorer Chase Husted was limited to a season-low five points on 2-for-6 shooting from the field and 1-for-5 from the line. He led all rebounders with 10.
