Jared Jordan hit a three and Patrick Ewing Jr followed it with a dunk to make it 63-42 and after Weems scored the final two baskets of the period, Bonn's win was looking secure with a 78-53 advantage.

David McCray gave them their biggest lead, 92-65, with a driving lay-up with 5:19 left and Weems hit a three-pointer 65 seconds from time to move them into triple figures with a 101-77 advantage.

Weems finished with 16 points for Bonn, while McCray added 14 and Jonas Wohlfarth-Bottermann had 12.
