The Eagles had several chances to win at the end of regulation but were unable to convert. With 20 seconds left, Todd Phillips went to the line for two free throws with EMU trailing by two. Phillips missed both foul shots, but the battle for the rebound ended up as a loose ball in the corner with Phillips tracking it down. Given another possession, the Royals tied the game, 72-72, on a driving layup by Austin Twine with 33 seconds left. The Eagles had two shots at a game-winner but failed to convert. Justin Reavis missed a short jumper, but the rebound went out of bounds and the Eagles had the ball with 3.5 seconds left. Rob Rice’s 3-pointer at the buzzer was short, sending the game to overtime. Dominic Trawick and Rice both posted double-doubles to lead the Eagles. Despite a tough shooting night Trawick led the Eagles in scoring with 20 points while also pulling down 10 boards.
