Kendall Anthony scored 24 points, and Richmond held off a late Wofford rally to post a 64-58 win Tuesday at the Robins Center in Richmond, Va.
The Terriers trailed 56-47 with 1:12 remaining, but they hit three 3-pointers to pull within 60-58 with 12 seconds to go. Karl Cochran made two long-range shots in that span, with Lee Skinner hitting another.
Richmond's Darren Brothers sank two free throws with 11 seconds left, making it a two-possession game. Cochran missed a 3-point attempt, and Anthony hit two foul shots for the final margin.
The Terriers (1-4) shot just 35.7 percent from the floor, with Cochran making just five of 16 attempts.
The Spiders (4-1) got 10 points and 11 rebounds from Derrick Williams. Brothers scored 13 points.
Richmond improved to 4-0 at home, while Wofford fell to 0-4 on the road.
Richmond opened the second half with a 10-0 run to pull out to a 36-24 lead. The spurt was capped by a three-point play from Anthony, who stole the ball and hit a layup while getting fouled.
Wofford missed all seven of its shots during the Spiders' early-second-half surge.
Neither team held more than a four-point lead in a back-and-forth first half. Williams' tip-in of his own missed layup gave the Spiders a 26-24 lead at the break.
Spiders guard Cedric Lindsay, who sustained a concussion in Sunday's game against Minnesota, did not play. His status for Saturday's game at Ohio is uncertain.
