With the title game tied in overtime and Gustavus in possession of the ball, Tengwell stole an inbounds pass and converted a layup for the key play in St. Thomas' closing 9-0 run that turned a five-point deficit into a four-point victory.

The basket was his only score of the game to go along with five rebounds.

With the title-game win, St. Thomas (21-6) received the MIAC's automatic bid to the Division III Men's Basketball tournament where they are defending national champion.

Tyler Grey (Montevideo) led the Gusties, who received an at-large berth, in the OT loss with 19 points.
