Berea College took a quick 5-0 lead, but trailed by 16 points early in the second half. Ponder led the comeback as the Mountaineers went on a 15-5 run.

Berea got within three points when Webster tipped in a missed shot with 14 seconds left in the half (29-26).

The Golden Eagles opened the second half on a 6-0 run and continued to pull away.
