Recap: Radford vs. Presbyterian

Conway, SC (SportsNetwork.com) - Ya Ya Anderson scored 18 points and Radford held off a late comeback attempt from Presbyterian to record a 78-73 win in the opening round of the Big South Tournament.

Four other players finished in double figures for the Highlanders, with Javonte Green compiling 16 points and nine rebounds and R.J. Price netting 15 points. Jalen Carethers and Rashun Davis added 11 and 10 points, respectively, off the bench.

Radford (21-11), the third seed of the North Division, will take on South No. 2 seed UNC Asheville in Friday's quarterfinals.

Presbyterian (6-26), which finished a league-worst 2-14 during the regular season, played the Highlanders to a 39-39 tie early in the second half before Radford put together a 19-4 run to move ahead to stay.

The Highlanders maintained a 15-point advantage with under six minutes to play, but a 12-1 spurt that Jordan Downing capped with a 3-pointer brought the Blue Hose within 70-66 with 4:04 left.

It was a one-point game after Presbyterian's William Truss scored inside with 27 seconds to go to cut the lead to 74-73. Downing misfired from beyond the arc on the Blue Hose's next possession, though, and Radford sealed the outcome on four free throws from Davis and Green down the stretch.

Downing poured in 32 points in a losing cause, with Reggie Dillard registering 13 points for Presbyterian.
