Coll. of Charleston 68, Samford 52

Antwaine Wiggins scored a career-high 25 points to lead College

of Charleston over Samford 68-52 in a Southern Conference game

Monday night.

It was the first win for the Cougars (13-9, 5-6) in two games

since Mark Byington became interim coach after Bobby Cremins took a

medical leave of absence, and it ended their four-game losing

streak.

The Bulldogs (7-14, 4-6) used a 16-4 run to lead 24-22 with 4:57

left in the first half, but Charleston answered with a 16-4 run of

its own for a 38-28 halftime lead. Wiggins made three 3-pointers

during that run and was 5 of 9 behind the arc in the game.

The Cougars, who have won all 12 of their games with Samford,

never led by fewer than eight points in the second half.

Matt Sundberg added 14 points for Charleston.

Tyler Hood and Raijon Kelly scored 11 each for Samford.
