Western Carolina at Charleston
A late push by the Cougars proved to be the difference as Charleston won a heart-breaker, 57-56 at home. An 11-0 run by the Cougars late in the second half erased a nine-point Catamount lead, Back-to-back 3-pointers by Marquise Pointer gave the Cougars a 54-53 lead with 1:17 to play. Mike Brown answered with a layup to retake the lead for the Cats, but Charleston retook the lead at 57-56. The Cats had a chance with five seconds to play but Torrion Brummit was unable to get off a shot as a very physical defensive block by the Cougars' James Bourne caused him to lose the ball underneath the basket and no call was made as time expired.
