The Saints doubled their lead (48-38) over the first 8 ½ minutes of the second half. The Saints pushed the lead to as high as 12 points (53-41) about midway through the second half but the Golden Eagles would make an 18-8 run to pull to within 2 points (61-59) but that would be as close as they would get as the Saints closed out with a 13-7 run to win the game 74-66.
