But like Br’er Rabbit the Eagles stayed elusively out of reach and pushed their lead back to double-digits at the final buzzer.

Brady Barnes was large and in charge in this game, scoring 25 points. Barnes scored 10 times from the floor and got to the line four times, making 5-of-8.

Austin Rexroad followed with 13 points, including two treys. C.O.R. had one player in double figures, Boehne, with 16.

The early lead was key for the Eagles as well as the stiff-arm finish. B.C. made 23 buckets and C.O.R. 22. They both made three 3-pointers. So scoring came down to free throws.

C.O.R. only got to the line for three free throws, making two. B.C. shot 16 free throws, making 10 an 8-point advantage. That plus the extra deuce were the margin of victory.
