It was all Warriors in the fourth quarter, as Gillison put up six more points and Queshawn Fields scored five of his seven in the final period, including a 3-point play to help seal it. Singleton added eight points and Xavier Chaplin contributed six in a balanced effort from the Warriors.
Geraldo Washington scored 15 points and Jaqavion Smith added 11 for the Eagles.
