COLUMBIA, Mo. – Tuesday night, it just meant more for Charleston Southern men’s basketball.
Paced by four players in double figures and a season-high 17 from Duncan LeXander, CSU (3-5) played spoiler over Missouri (4-4) from the Southeastern Conference 68-60 for their third win over an SEC foe in program history.
CSU trailed 28-23 at the half as the defenses dictated the action, but an 8-of-11 shooting display from deep propelled the Bucs past the Tigers.
LeXander was joined in double figures by Travis Anderson’s career-high 15 off the bench, 11 from Phlandrous Fleming Jr. and 10 from Ty Jones. The Bucs forced 16 Missouri turnovers to pull the upset while tying their season-best 10 treys offensively.
CSU returns home for a single game Saturday as they welcome MEAC-power and NCAA Tournament mainstay North Carolina Central. Tipoff is slated for 5:30 p.m. on ESPN+ and will comes as the night cap to a women’s and men’s doubleheader fromBuccaneer Field House.
