It was 44-43 at halftime and the team’s traded leads in the third before Paris ended the quarter on a 7-0 run for a 70-63 lead on a Schilb three.

The hosts did not let down with Ford scoring a basket-plus-foul and Nicolas Lang connecting on a three-pointer. Landing Sane scored twice to make it 18-10 midway through the quarter. Tomas remained CAI’s go-to guy with a bucket on the offensive glass and 2 free throws. Ndoye heated up with a pair of threes to give the hosts a double-digit lead, 26-15. Green added a three-point play before Jelovac’s three-pointer and Katic inside helped keep CAI in the picture at 31-20 after 10 minutes. That duo took over for the visitors with another Jelovac triple and Katic scoring from Jelovac’s assist. After Green’s layup, Katic scored 4 more points and Jelovac drew CAI within 33-31. Dionte Christmas’s steal led to a Schilb layup. Green added a layup and then a steal for a Ford bucket to get in front by 5. Free throws by Goulding and Jelovac narrowed to gap again and Lisch made it 41-40 from the line. Schilb answered with a three, but Landry matched him to make it 44-43 at the break.

Lisch drained a pair of threes early in the second half. The first tied the game and the second gave CAI a 48-49 lead. The lead went back and forth on threes from Schilb and Goulding. Sane nailed a triple to put the hosts up 4, but CAI reeled off three quick baskets to lead 58-60 and Henk Norel’s jumper. Ford countered for Paris before Goulding tied the score at 63-63 with his second three of the night. Paris finished the quarter with an open 7-0 run that included Schilb’s fourth three of the game. Pedro Llompart nailed a three to start the fourth quarter and bring CAI within 70-66. Schilb scored twice to keep Paris ahead, but a Landry three made it 74-72. Green hit a big three with five minutes to go to give the hosts an 8-point cushion. Jelovac and Landry soon had CAI back within a shot. Baskets by Christmas and Schilb protected the lead. Lisch free throws made it 84-79 with a minute to go. Tomas closed the gap to 2 and Lisch had chances to win it or tie it in the closing seconds, but missed twice.
