The teams played back-and-forth until Rashawn Rembert made a 3-pointer with 8:06 left that gave the Buccaneers the lead for good at 70-68. That 3 also sparked a 16-2 run over the next 3 minutes that ended with an 83-70 ETSU advantage.

The Ospreys (3-15, 1-4) used a 12-4 run to close within 87-82 with 2:02 left, but the Bucs made their free throws while UNF missed its next two 3-pointers.
