Prohaszka draws his final match. Webster is now tied for first with UTRGV for the championship. Webster has two matches remaining. UTRGV only has one remaining.

UTRGV is likely to win their final game, which would give them seven and a half points. Webster would have to get at least one win and two ties to win the championship if UTRGV wins their final game.

Round three points:
Webster: 6
UTRGV: 6.5
Texas Tech: 4
SLU: 1.5
