Lisle (9-7, 5-0) posted a 22-11 lead after a quarter and outscored Wilmington 30-12 in the second half, allowing Lions coach Mark LaScala to empty his bench.

Point guard Cody Monson led Lisle with 19 points. Matt Bucher got a start and responded with 12 points while Jeremy Glavanovits added 10 points. Held nearly 8 points under his average by Dawon Burrell, Dan O'Leary scored 14 points to lead Wilmington (9-7, 3-2).
