The second half saw the Brothers open with a 6-0 spurt keyed by a pair of Paulus assists before Nottingham again clamped down on defense, going on an 11-0 run to tie the game at 40.
As it has in the last two meetings between the teams, the game went down to the final possession as CBA took a 59-56 lead with just over eight seconds remaining. Nottingham ran down the court and actually got off a desperation three pointer that went half way down before rimming out.
CBA (18-4) will face Ludden on Friday night in the sectional title game.
