Lexington then pulled away in the third quarter, with an 11-point advantage in the period, and for a 13-point lead heading into the final period.

The first two quarters were played at a slower pace than Lexington had played the entire season. With Lexington setting an offense and passing the ball three or four times before shooting, the shooters had a better time getting their shots.

Eriq Mitchell was extremely hot from outside the threepoint arc. Mitchell hit 6 for 9 shots from three-point land. Strangely, he was only 3 of 11 inside the arc. Mitchell had 25 points for Lexington.

Lexington won the game and preserved their playoff chances with point guard Jason Washington wearing a brace on his leg. Washington was much more under control, and the Eagle offense produced in the second half, after the players got used to the slower pace. Mitchell, Zach Lay, and Washington made great passes to teammates for baskets.
