Louisville was up 67-58 after three quarters but Puerto Rico tied the game with one minute left in regulation. The teams traded baskets in that final minute and ended regulation tied at 87-87.

In overtime, Louisville had lost a significant size advantage as Mangok, Mahmoud, and Spalding all fouled out of the game.

The final score was 102-94.
