Ethan Cordray's 3-pointer pulled the Gorillas back to within three points, at 83-80, with 1:22 to play, but Wright countered with a jumper with 42 seconds to go to extend the Hornets' margin back to five points.

Porter scored a team-leading 21 points to pace the Gorillas. He hit five 3-pointers in the contest. McGee added 20 points and A.J. Adams chipped in with 16 points.
