After honoring former coaches Jeff Mayfield and Randy Kirk with their induction into the Hall of Fame, and honoring Jon Wallace as the male athlete and Adriane Tschantz as the female athlete of the year 2008-2009, the Red Lions were led by Wallace as he scored 19 points and grabbed eight rebounds.

Wallace received a lot of help from Kevin Watson with 16 points and nine rebounds; Mac Ingmire, 13 points and five rebounds; and Landan Callahan with 12 points on 4 of 6 from 3-point range.
