GSU shot a woeful 25 percent from the field and missed all five shots from beyond the arc in the half.

GSU greatly improved in the second half, connecting on 41.4 percent from the field, but still had trouble from long-range, making only 2-of-10 from 3-point distance. Charleston continued to struggle from the field, making only 35.7 percent from the field and shot an identical 2-of-10 from beyond the arc.

A back-and-forth pace in the second half, the Cougars led by four, 44-40, with under two minutes to play. The Eagles then scored nine straight points in a span of 42 seconds to steal the game and hand the Cougars their first road loss this season.

GSU outscored Charleston 13-7 at the free-throw line, including hitting 12- of-13 in the second half.
