Charleston Southern nearly overcame a double-digit lead with a furious comeback over the closing 3:53 before succumbing to visiting Winthrop on Thursday evening inside the Buccaneer Field House, 76-72.
The Bucs (10-12, 4-5) rallied back from a 16-point deficit after trailing 73-57 as CSU’s defense stood up and produced six turnovers on Winthrop’s (15-8, 7-3) final nine possessions of the contest. CSU cut the lead all the way down to 75-72 following a pair of Christian Keeling free throws, but three late three-pointers were off the mark as the clock ran out on the Bucs’ comeback attempt.
Dontrell Shuler led the Bucs with a team-high 16 points, while Phlandrous Fleming added14 points and six assists off the bench in the loss. Christian Keeling added nine points and a game-high 14 rebounds to help supplement the CSU attack.
Charles Falden (17) and Josh Ferguson (17) paced Winthrop’s offense as the Eagles shot 47.6% from the floor and 44.8% from the three-point line in the win. Adam Pickett added 14 points and four assists in the win.
“Winthrop is a good team and played very hard. Congratulations to them. They really stretch you defensively and they shoot the ball well. I thought the last three or four minutes, we showed a tremendous amount of courage and effort to never quit. I thought we gave ourselves a chance to win it late. We have seven more games and still a chance to have a great year We will see what happens. I am excited about this group and how hard we fought to try to win this game.” – Head Coach Barclay Radebaugh.
Charleston Southern continues the 2018-19 season this weekend as the Bucs traveled to Kimmel Arena and Asheville, N.C. for a Saturday afternoon contest against UNC Asheville. Tipoff on ESPN+ is set for 2 p.m.
