    Andre Armstrong added 15 points and Collin Johnson 14 for the Eagles, who led by nine in the first half and 16 in the second.

    Dukes led Bethune-Cookman (12-19, 7-9) with 18 points, hitting 4 of 12 from deep to win the MEAC 3-point title, while teammate Adrien Coleman, with 15 points, won the league scoring title. Javoris Bryant contributed 12 points and 11 rebounds.
