College of Charleston rebounds in Colonial with 73-60 (Jan 21, 2017)
CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) Grant Riller and Joe Chealey each scored 17 points and the College of Charleston defeated James Madison 73-60 on Saturday, rebounding from its first loss in Colonial Athletic Association play.
Charleston had fallen to North Carolina-Wilmington on Thursday, ending a seven-game win streak, in a meeting of the CAA unbeatens. The rematch is Feb. 2 in Wilmington.
Jarrell Brantley added 15 points and Marquise Pointer 10 for the Cougars (16-5, 7-1). Chealey and Riller combined to make 17 of 20 free throws - Charleston was 28 of 35 at the line while James Madison shot 14 of 18.
Paulius Satkus led the Dukes (6-15, 4-4) with 20 points, Joey McLean added 14 and Ramone Snowden 13.
Charleston made seven 3-pointers to James Madison's four, but the disparity in foul shots was a key difference in an otherwise even game that saw six ties and 10 lead changes.
