While the Catamounts won the rebounding battle (28-27), with a much larger lead in offensive rebounds (17-7), most of the other stats were either competitive, except the field goal percentages.
Both teams had 8 steals, one block shot each, and 17 personal fouls each. However, the Eagles were hot, hitting 54.9% of their field goals, compared to an anemic 46.3% for the Cats.
The Eagles hit 3 more three-pointers than the Cats, that combined with the Cats only making 11 of their 20 free throw attempts, was all that was needed to secure a road victory for Georgia Southern.
Tom Tankelewicz lead all scoring with 20 points, however, Trey Sumler was held to 3 of 10 field goals, 0-4 threes, and 1 of 2 free throws, for only 7 points on the day. Georgia Southern placed four in double figures, lead by Eric Ferguson with 18 points.
