After a close first half, Rhodes College pulled away from the Eagles in the fourth quarter to seal a 82-73 win Thursday night.

A big three-pointer from Rhodes with 3:20 remaining put the Eagles in a tough position and trailed 73-61. The Eagles hit 22-of-27 (81.5) from the free throw line as a team. Hailey Ostrander hit three three-pointers to lead the Eagles with 19 points.
