USF followed suit and scored eight straight points on three straight possessions, on two more 3-pointers by Johnson to make it a 39-37 game. That did not get the Vikings down as they scored 12 of the game's next 16 points to go up 51-41 with 1:32 to go in the half.

Augustana took a 51-45 halftime lead after shooting 65 percent (19 of 29) from the field in the first half, including 7 of 10 from 3-point range. The Vikings were led by Schilling's 13 first-half points with Matthew Brazendale and Jansen each adding nine points.
