Anthony Thomas finished with 10 points and four assists as the Cougars as they picked up their second straight win.

Mike Groselle led The Citadel (3-12, 0-5) with 19 points and nine rebounds. Matt Van Scyoc chimed in with 17 points and Ashton Moore scored 10 points off the bench as the Bulldogs lost their 11th in a row.

The Citadel was able to overcome an early 11-3 deficit as it hit 58.3 percent of its field goal attempts to take a narrow, 34-31 lead into the intermission. The Cougars trailed by just three points at halftime despite shooting only 34.5 percent from the floor in the opening 20 minutes.

The Bulldogs allowed their lead to slip away and went just 4-of-8 at the free throw line in the second period.
