The Eagles led 42-26 at the half behind Bandimere's 11 points and McKinney's 14 points. The Eagles shot an impressive 62 percent from the field in the second quarter. In the third and fourth quarters, the Crusaders could do little to slow down the Eagles. Bandimere drilled a three-pointer at the 6:44 mark of the third quarter to put the Eagles up 49-28. The lead ballooned to 61-33 to start the fourth. Overall, the Eagles forced 21 turnovers and limited the Crusaders to a 28 percent shooting clip from the field.
