DJ Sokol Arena on the campus of Creighton University was the site for the championship contest of the River Cities Conference Tournament, pitting Mount Michael against Roncalli Catholic. Roncalli, the three seed in the tourney, was coming off a hard-fought 59-56 upset on the road at #2 seeded Skutt Catholic. Top-seeded Mount Michael on the other hand handled their semifinal opponent #4 seeded South Sioux City 80-41 to set-up the title match-up.

Mount Michael looked every bit the highest seed in the tourney in the 56-32 victory. The defensive side of the ball was where the Knights completely dictated the action. While the Pride fought with great effort, Mount Michael held Roncalli to just 10 points the entire first half, taking a 13 point halftime lead with them into the locker room at intermission. The Knights would put the game away in the third frame with their best offensive segment, leading 47-21 at the end of that quarter.
