Brandon Bowdry added 18 points and a game-high eight rebounds, and Carlos Medlock went 7-for-9 from the free throw line en route to 12 points. Medlock, the current Mid-American Conference West player of the week, also had a game-best eight assists.

Greg Logins led the Golden Griffins (3-2) with 18 points and seven rebounds. Frank Turner scored 12 points and Elton Frazier 11.

The Eagles, who never trailed, led 46-25 at intermission.
