    Landon Shipley scored 13 points in the second half and led the Governors with 18 points, while Drake Reed chipped in with 10.

    Adam Leonard, Julian Mascoll and Mike Rose each scored 11 for the Colonels. Leonard connected on three of his team's five shots from long range, with all of those coming consecutively in the second half.
