However, that was as close as they would come as the Dolphins went on a 16-2 run to lead by 18. It was an advantage the visitors would maintain throughout the half.
Blair led Stetson with nine points and four rebounds. The Hatters were a solid 46% from the field, yet the Dolphins were a more impressive 60%. Colbert was lights-out for JU shooting 7-for-10, 4-for-4 from 3-point range, and led all scorers at the break with 23 points.
Stetson opened the second half doing everything it could to get back in the game. Unfortunately for the Hatters they were facing a hot team that was hitting nearly everything it threw up at the basket. With 9:27 remaining in the game the teams played an even 17-17 period.
