GREENSBORO, N.C. -- C.J. Reed scored 23 points and Cameron Baskerville posted a double-double to lead Georgia Southern to a 66-60 victory over UNC Greensboro in a Southern Conference game Wednesday night.
Baskerville finished with 19 points and 11 rebounds and Marvin Baynham chipped in 10 points for the Eagles (13-17, 7-10), who won their second straight. Reed made 14 of 14 free throws with nine rebounds.
The Eagles outrebounded the Spartans 50-29.
Armstrong made a 3-pointer to tie it 48-48 with 4:41 remaining, but Reed made two foul shots and Baskerville hit a 3-pointer for a 53-48 advantage at the 3:26 mark. Reed hit 6 of 6 and Baskerville 3 of 4 from the line in the final 30 seconds to seal the victory.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
