Bona 39, BC 32, 12:31: Back to back threes by Conger and Matthew Wright might wake up the Bonnies, who opened the half with sloppy play and four second half turnovers.

Bona 33, BC 28, 15:40 second half: Bona starts the half slowly and didn't score their first field goal until nearly four minutes off the clock on a layup by Chris Johnson. Charlon Kloof has three fouls.

Bona 29, BC 25, halftime: Look for the Bonnies to make adjustments on the Wildcats three-point shooters (5 for 11). Demitrius Conger and Chris Johnson lead the Bonnies with five points each. Ndoye has a game-high six boards. Stanley Elliott has eight points off the bench for the Wildcats.

Bona 23. BC 15, 7:01: Indeed, the Bonnies will run and press more and they have a shot-blocker in Youssou Ndoye (two blocks) to erase any mistakes. Bona should blow this game open any time now.
