The ball fell in the basket, then the crowd went quiet. They all watched as Commerce jumped all over the court after pulling off an upset of the No. 1 seed on their home floor.

Commerce went on to play Washburn and beat them by one point as well. The Commerce team beat Washburn, Missouri Western and Emporia State in their region of the tournament.
