Wes Webbert led the Panthers with 19 points and Robbie Bramhill added 15.
Grace trailed by 21 points in the first half but went on a 16-2 run at one point to inch within 12 points at the half. After the break, the Tigers clawed their way back into the game and found it tied at 69-69 late. After Grace took the lead, DU’s Bramhill hit a key three-pointer with under a minute to go to seal the victory, but the Panthers had to defend until the buzzer to secure the win, including a steal on an inbounds lob near the basket.
7-foot big man Adam Raymer led Grace throughout the game, providing the much-needed inside presence for the Tigers.
Davenport moves to 4-1 on the season and Grace falls to 4-6.
