The Braves were anchored by Jacoby Shade’s offense in the third quarter, as the junior netted 11 of the team’s 15 points.

In the fourth quarter, the Braves pulled away from North by converting 8 of 10 free throws. Shade also added two threes of his own in the final period as the Braves sealed their second straight win.

Cam Shoemaker led the Braves on the boards with six of the team’s 21 rebounds.
