Defensively, Evangel forced 23 turnovers by the Yellowjackets and scored 21 points off turnovers to help pull away.

Both teams picked up their shooting in the second half with Graceland shooting 54 percent from the field and Evangel shooting 51 percent. The Crusaders helped seal the win going a season-best 31 of 42 from the free-throw line.

Clark Brewington knocked down a trio of three's as he finished with 19 points and four assists. Edriel Martinborough added 16 points, while Nate Davis tallied 10 points.
