The lead changed hands three more times until Eberhardt’s 3 at the top of the key with 1:09 left put Elon up 72-71. Santa Ana added two free throws before Milon missed a 3-pointer and Seibring iced it with two more from the line.

Milon scored 22 points with four 3-pointers, Nathan Knight added 18 points with 14 rebounds and Chase Audige had 13 points for the Tribe (7-12, 3-4), who shot 42 percent in losing their third straight.
