Peace (3-9) was coming off a 96-16 loss to Division I Elon on Jan. 4. ''I know it's tough because I've been on both sides of it,'' head coach Christian Dysart told the Associated Press.

''I feel bad for their kids because I know they've been working hard in practice,'' said Dysart. ''It was one of those situations where you wish it could have been more competitive for everyone involved.''

Peace started the game with a press before Dysart called it off midway through the first half with Peace leading by more than 30 points. Bennett scored its first point with six minutes left in the first half and trailed 61-1 at the half.
