Despite the defeat, Toledo secured a first-round home game in the conference tournament because of a loss by Miami (Ohio).

After the Rockets went ahead 61-57, they went scoreless for the last 4:27. Northern Illinois got a jumper from Tony Nixon and a three-point play and a basket from Keith Gray to make it 64-61.

Toledo had a chance to tie, but Rian Pearson turned it over with 5 seconds left, and the Huskies' Marquavese Ford hit a free throw for the final margin.
