Trailing 35-29 at the break, Chattanooga (17-3, 6-1 Southern) took its first lead of the game during a 14-2 run sparked by back-to-back 3-pointers from Robertson and Tre' McLean to make it 50-46 with 8:53 to play. Greensboro (6-13, 2-4) cut the gap to 53-51 on Asad Lamot's 3 but then Chattanooga steadily pulled away down the stretch.
