Wofford 67 - Texas A&M 62
Down four points with four minutes to go, the Wofford College men's basketball team used an 8-0 run to take the lead and made clutch free throws in the final minute for a 67-62 win at Texas A&M on Tuesday afternoon at Reed Arena. The Aggies built a 42-32 advantage early in the second half, but the Terriers answered with a 14-2 run to take a 46-44 lead. After trading the lead five more times, Wofford trailed 57-53 with 4:09 left in the game. The Terriers had five points by B.J.

The Citadel 74 - North Carolina Central 82
The Citadel men's basketball team dropped its final non-conference road game of the season, falling 81-74 at NC Central Tuesday night in Durham, North Carolina. The Citadel got on the board first with a basket from Elijah Morgan, but a 4:42 scoring drought allowed the Eagles to open up a seven-point lead. After Austin Ash hit a three-pointer to tie the game, the Eagles went on a 12-0 run to take a double-digit lead with just over four minutes to play in the half. The Bulldogs would get as close as eight points as Colby McAllister scored in transition, then found Ash on the wing for a three-pointer. Turnovers continued to be the story as The Citadel turned the ball over 14 times in the first half, leading to 11 NCCU points. The Citadel would pull to within three points on an Elijah Morgan three-pointer, but the Eagles would not allow the Bulldogs to get any closer.
