The Spartans returned home from nearby Baldwin-Wallace College with something they hadn't achieved since the federation of Case Institute of Technology and Western Reserve University: a victory. The victory was the Spartans' only win in the past 12 meetings of the two schools.

Led by junior guard Reid Anderson, whose 25 points were the game-high, the Spartans (1-0, 0-0 UAA) jumped out to a 24-15 lead early in the first half, thanks to a 15-4 rally. The Yellow Jackets wouldn't fade away so easily however, as Baldwin-Wallace would catch up and take the lead 31-30 with five minutes to go in the first half. A basket from near half-court by Anderson gave Case 45-40 lead going into halftime.

Baldwin-Wallace stayed close, tying the game several times before center Eric Duerr capped an 8-1 run to give a 62-55 lead to the Spartans. Duerr helped push the Spartans towards their first victory of the season, with 10 points.

Sophomore Tom Summers notched several key rebounds down the stretch and finished with his third career double-double with 17 points and a career-high 19 rebounds.

A turnover by Anderson gave Baldwin-Wallace one last chance to take the lead, however the Yellow Jackets' leading scorer Kyle Brown clanged one off the rim.

Freshman forward Evan Tsudis sealed the win for the Spartans. His block with 29 seconds left preserved the lead. He also sank a free throw which capped the the 83-81 result.
