The host Eagles jumped out to an early lead and extended the margin throughout the first half. Emory led 46-28 with under a minute remaining in the period before the Scots answered with four straight thanks to a Chris Boyd jumper and Teron Ferguson's steal which led to a pair of free throws to cut the Eagles' lead to 46-32 at the break.

But in the second half, Emory scored the first six points and Covenant would not get closer the rest of the game. The Eagles would lead by as many as 38 midway through the second half.
