Jake Eastman chipped in 17 points on 8-of-12 shooting for the Braves (3-0), who went on an 8-1 run with 2:51 remaining to turn a 65-65 tie into a 73-66 lead, then hit enough free throws in the final minute to secure the win.
John Hart scored a career-high 26 points, including four 3-pointers, off the bench for the Jaguars (2-2), and Greg Rice and Mitchell Patton added 15 apiece. Donovan Gibbs had a team-high eight rebounds.
