Emory and Henry broke open a close game with a 26-14 run midway through the first half. With SU trailing by just one, 10-9, following a Jalyn Jarrett-to-Avery White layup at the 14:44 mark, the Wasps went on that 26-14 spurt to take a 36-23 lead after Colin Molden's 3-pointer with 6:38 left.
Christopher Chaney snapped that run with a layup at 6:22, but the damage was done.
E&H scored 18 of the final 24 points of the half to lead 54-31 at the break.

"Our team has to learn what it takes to compete with tournament-caliber teams night in-and-night out to earn more consistent results in games we aren't expected to win," head coach Adam Walsh said. "We will learn a lot from this game."
