ORANGEBURG, S.C. -- Darryl Palmer scored 18 points and South Carolina State broke its 15-game losing streak with a 72-70 victory over North Carolina A&T Saturday night.
The Bulldogs (4-18, 1-9) gave interim coach Murray Garvin his first win since replacing Tim Carter earlier this month. South Carolina State also ended a 25-game losing streak in Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference games.
NC A&T's Lamont Middleton's two foul shots with 0:37 left cut it to 69-67. But free throws from three different Bulldogs made it 72-67 with 0:14 left. Witter hit a trey, but Toombs' two last-second missed foul shots didn't matter.
SMU has signed a second player from Australia, 6-foot-11 forward Harry Froling, to a national letter of intent. The Mustangs previously signed guard Tom Wilson from Australia.
There's nothing to suggest the Jayhawks won't end up atop the Big 12 for a 13th season in a row. But what about a return to the Final Four?
Colorado State graduate transfer John Gillon has chosen Syracuse, giving the Orange a potential starter at point guard entering the 2016-17 season.
