Andrew Goudelock (Lilburn, Ga.) scored 19 points to pace the College of Charleston’s men’s basketball team to a 86-75 victory over TCU in the final game of the inaugural Charleston Classic played at the Carolina First Arena.
 
For Goudelock’s efforts, he was named to the Charleston Classic All-Tournament team.
 
In the first half, both the Cougars and the Horned Frogs traded baskets throughout the period, as Charleston held a 17-15 edge with a little over nine minutes remaining in the half.
 
It was there that the Cougars went on a 24-7 run over a six-minute span to open up a 41-22 lead with three minutes left in the half. After both teams traded baskets for the rest of the period, the Cougars held a demanding 49-30 advantage going into the locker room.
 
Dustin Scott (Jamestown, S.C.) and Antwaine Wiggans (Greeneville, Tenn.) led all scorers in the first half, as they each had 10 points to lead the Cougars.
 
The second half began just the opposite for Charleston, as TCU came out and chipped away at the Cougars large lead right from the start of the half. The closest the Horned Frogs came to the Charleston lead was at the seven-minute mark when they cut the lead to 64-59.
 
The Cougars, however, would eventually shut down the TCU rally and built their lead back up to 79-66 after with 2:34 left on the clock after Scott dunked off a Tony White Jr. (Knoxville, Tenn.) pass.
 
Other top scorers for the Cougars included Scott finished with 12 points and Jermaine Johnson (Los Angeles, Calf.) who added 12 points. TCU’s Kevin Langford scored a game-high 27 points to lead the Horned Frogs.
 
In the championship game of the classic, Clemson knocked off Temple 76-72 to take the tournament championship.
 
The Cougars will return to action on Thursday, Nov. 20th when they take on cross-town rival Charleston Southern. The game, which is to be played at the North Charleston Coliseum, starts at 7 p.m.
