Ethan Hopper had a pair of hits in the win for Tech. The Spartans had the tying runs in scoring position with two outs in the top of the second inning, but Austin Nikolas struck out Dylan Tebrake to end the game.
Karl-Anthony Towns' 26 points set a new single-season scoring record for the Wolves, previously set by Kevin Love in 2013-14. Towns broke Love's record of 2010 points with a bank shot from the baseline early in the game.
Trevor Koening threw four strong innings before yielding to Austin Nikolas for the final frame. The Tigers scored nine runs in the bottom of the fifth inning, including a three-run home run from Ethan Hopper, to invoke the mercy rule.
