Julian Banks led the Explorers with 20 points.
Trailing 72-70 with under two minutes to play, Monroe stole the ball from Rasheed Quadri and went coast-to-coast for a layup to tie the game at 72. Monroe was fouled and missed the free throw, but Jaason Smith (9 rebounds) was there for the putback and a 74-72 lead.
