The War Eagles continued their great shooting in the second half, but also started attacking and finishing at the rim on their way to a 82-43 victory. Freshman guard, Tory Kelly, led the War Eagles in the second half with 10 points. Tommy Bruner finished the night with 16 points. Khalil Robinson and Jalil Robinson added 13 and 14 points respectively to lead the scoring for the War Eagles.
