Defending Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference champion #1E Centre College used a huge 3-pointer from guard Bryon Ellis to extend the Colonels lead 10 points late in the second half and Centre earned a tough 65-49 win over tournament host, #4W Millsaps College at the Hangar Dome. Senior forward Danny Noll paced the Colonel offense as he tallied 17 points, six rebounds, two assists and two blocks in the win on 6-for-10 shooting. Teammates Josh Crawford (13) and Alex Lloyd (10) also chipped in with double-figures while Ellis scored six points, both on 3-point shots. Millsaps was led by junior guard LV Sumler's 16 points while teammates Blake Martinez and Chris Ingle scores 14 and 10 respectively.
