The Tigers pushed their lead to 50 points at 65-15 as they went on a 12-0 run to start the second half of play.

Man did not get a basket until the 1:55 mark on a jumper by Trey Whitt to make it 72-17. Reserve Nick Eldridge hit a 3-ball with 55 ticks on the clock as the Tigers took a commanding 77-22 lead into the final eight minutes of play.

Napier then elected to put in all the reserves for the entire fourth quarter as the Tigers would hit the century mark at 1:10 left in the game on a three-point play by Eldridge to give the Black Attack a 70-point lead and go on for the rout of the Billies as the final score would be 105-32.

Eldridge added nine points for Chapmanville while Collins had eight and Browning seven. Carson Toney tacked on six points. Killen had five, Brennan Williams four, Tristain Browning three and Fidelis Nwafor two.
