Al'Lonzo Coleman led Presbyterian (8-13, 2-9) in scoring with 25 points. He hit 9 of 13 field goal attempts and 7 of 11 shots at the foul line. But no other Blue Hose player finished in double figures.

Charleston Southern hit 49 percent of its shots from the field (24 of 49). The Buccaneers were much hotter at the free-throw line, going 18 for 21. That included Nimley's 7 of 8 effort.
