In addition to Kuhn for BW (6-2, 2-1 OAC), freshman guard Jay Battle (Gahanna Lincoln) had 16 points and eight assists and sophomore forward Jake Fetherolf (Norwalk) had his seventh double-figure scoring and rebounding game this season with 14 points and 14 rebounds. The Fighting Muskies (3-6, 0-3 OAC) were led by freshman guard Jarrell Battle with a game-high 23 points and senior center Cody Seiler had 15 points.
In the first half, Muskingum grabbed a 4-0 lead before BW outscored the Fighting Muskies 9-2 to take a 9-6 lead at 13:03 when Kuhn made one of two foul shots. The game was tied two times and there were six lead changes before BW took a 24-21 lead on a three-pointer by Battle at 6:27.
The Yellow Jacket lead grew to nine at 38-29 when Fetherolf made one of two charity tosses at 1:12, and BW led 38-32 at the intermission. Battle and Fetherolf led BW with nine points apiece in the first stanza.
In the second half, Muskingum came out firing on all cylinders and outscored BW 12-3 to take a 44-41 lead at 17:17 when Marsh canned his second triple in 1:04. The lead grew to seven at 51-44 at 13:47.

The Yellow Jacket again went on a run and outscored Muskingum 11-4 to take a 71-64 lead with 4:16 left when Battle canned a trey and forced first-year Fighting Muskie coach Travis Schwab to utilize a timeout. Twice Muskingum got within three points with the last at 1:00 when Seiler grabbed a rebound and scored to make it 73-72.
