Brandon Smith scored six first-half points, including two on a putback basket. Caleb Dunn made several key rebounds and scored a jumper from the elbow at the buzzer to end the first half with Augusta ahead 27-22.
Kesten Trebbe buried two 3-pointers early in the third quarter to help the Orioles pull away with a 35-24 lead. Buhler got no closer than seven points the rest of the way.
