- Senior center Josh McGriff (Somerset, N.J./Franklin) pulled the Bison within one less than four minutes into the game before St. Mary's distanced itself with an 18-7 run which featured four triples, including a pair from Bynum.
- Bynum notched 16 of his game-best 27 points in the first half on 7-of-10 shooting with two long-range shots and four assists, helping the Seahawks to a 43-34 halftime advantage.
