It would be at the 2:52 mark when SE tied the game on a Dworsky jumper and a pair of Everett free throws with 2:11 to play would put SE up 56-54.
A pair of Jobe free throws with 32 seconds to go stretched the lead to four points, but SE would hold a 59-58 lead with under 10 seconds to play when Jobe would swipe the ball from HSU's DJ Franklin and hit a free throw on the other end to secure the 60-58 victory.
