The Bengals turned up the defensive pressure early creating easy scoring opportunities for JP Moorman and held Jalek Felton in check for much of the half. Felton was coming off a 42 point performance last night. He was able to get it going late in the half with a steal for a dunk and Juwan Gary chipped in 9 points to cut the lead to 28-25 going in to the half. The Bengals would go on a 10-5 run with 9:40 left in the second half and then Juwan Gary of Gray would bring the house down with a thunderous dunk to cut the lead to 5 points. With 6:25 to go Felton would get a steal and convert a layup to cut the lead to 44-42. The Bengals would then get the lead back to 7 points on a Pearce Landry three pointer with under two minutes to go up 50-43.  With :40 seconds to go JP Moorman would push the lead to 9 points on a layup and Gray would answer with a three pointer by Tommy Bruner to make it 46-52. John Newman would then help put the game away for the Bengals making 2 of 3 Free-Throws down the stretch for the win by a score of 54-49.

The Bengals were led by JP Moorman who finished with 14 points and 8 rebounds and leave the Chick-Fil-A Classic with a 2-1 record and a 5th place finish and an overall record of 17-1.
