Georgia Southern edges Charleston

By The Associated Press
STATESBORO -- C.J. Reed scored 14 points and Cleon Roberts chipped in 12 to help Georgia Southern rally and beat College of Charleston 51-47 Thursday night in Southern Conference play to win back-to-back games for just the second time this season.

Reed and Roberts combined to go a perfect 9 of 9 from the free-throw line. Eric Ferguson added 11 points for Georgia Southern (8-10, 2-3), which made just 6 of 24 shots in the first half and trailed 20-13 at intermission.

Georgia Southern never trailed by more than four in the second half and took a one-point lead four times before Ferguson's dunk put the Eagles up for good 45-44 with 42 seconds remaining. Reed sank two free throws and Roberts added four in the final 30 seconds.

Andrew Lawrence scored 15 for College of Charleston (12-6, 4-2), which was held to just one field goal over the final 3 minutes.
