November 6, 2018

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Travis McConico and Duncan LeXander each scored 17 points and Charleston Southern beat NAIA Columbia International 100-68 on Tuesday night in a season opener.

McConico sank five of CSU's 16 3-pointers and Deontaye Buskey added three 3-pointers and 11 points. Christian Keeling was held to 13 points on 5-of-16 shots.

Keeling, who became the fifth player in Big South history to reach 1,000 career points as a sophomore, ranked second in the conference in scoring, sixth in steals, and tenth in rebounding last season.

CSU starts the year with a stretch of four games in 10 days. The Bucs' 13-game nonconference schedule is highlighted by trips to Clemson and Florida.

The Rams are led by first-year head coach Tony Stockman. Freshman Eric Graham had 11 points and nine rebounds, but also nine turnovers. CIU turned it over 30 times.
