Boyd shot 7 of 11 from the field, including three 3-pointers, and made all eight of his free throws for the Lancers (10-4). Milan Acquaah added 19 points, making all nine of his free throws. The Lancers were 25 of 29 from the line and 7 of 15 from the arc while shooting 48% overall. Ferron Flavors Jr. added 14 points.
