TFC traveled to Sewanee University in Tennessee to face Oglethorpe University and Sewanee in the Lon Varnell Classic. The Eagles faced Oglethorpe in the opening game of the tournament. In similar fashion to the Montreat loss, the Eagles trailed Oglethorpe by a large margin in the first half. The Oglethorpe Stormy Petrels jumped to an early 34-11. The Eagles trailed 55-30 at the half. Needing to see more effort on the defensive end, the Eagles coaching staff charged their players to improve on that side of the ball. Freshman Adam Hitten led the energy in the second half and limited the Stormy Petrels to 39 second half points, but lost 71-94. Josh Barrett led the Eagles in scoring with 21 points on 6 of 10 shooting. Westfall and Hamlett each added 12 points, and Westfall grabbed 10 rebounds.
