Juniata cut the deficit to 68-62 with eight minutes to play, but the Profs went on a 14-3 tear to build back the lead, 82-65. Ross hit back-to-back three pointers in the run which sealed the win for Rowan.
In the first half, the teams went back and forth, trading leads throughout, with a five-point margin by Rowan being the biggest lead. Juniata hit a pair of free throws with :08 left to own the 44-43 halftime lead.
