St. Thomas (Minn.) 82, Williams 79 — After trailing by 8 with less than a minute left in Salem, the Ephs (25-6) nearly forced overtime but James Klemm’s tying 3-point attempt was blocked with five seconds to play and Daniel Wohl’s 3-pointer came after the buzzer.

Klemm had 20 points for Williams, matching the total Will DeBerg had for the top-ranked Tommies (30-1). In the semfinals, St. Thomas will take on Mary Hardin-Baylor, which ousted St. Mary’s (Md.), 69-66.
