The two teams battled back and forth all night long, with Chelsea leading 23-21 at halftime, only to watch Dexter snag a four-point lead entering the fourth quarter.

Chelsea pushed back for a three-point edge partway through the fourth, but Dexter equalized and actually squandered an opportunity to win in regulation when a last-second free throw misfired.

Luke Hollandsworth scored 16 points for Chelsea (2-7, 1-2 SEC White).
