WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) — Omar Prewitt tied his career-high with 30 points to lead William & Mary to an 89-79 victory over College of Charleston on Saturday.
The win halted a short two-game skid and kept The Tribe (14-11, 8-6 CAA) perfect at home with its 12th straight win.
Prewitt was 13 of 19 from the field, including 3 of 6 from beyond the arc. Greg Malinowski added 16 points on 4-of-7 shooting from distance, Nathan Knight had 15 points and Daniel Dixon dropped in 14.
The Tribe lost to Charleston 77-67 earlier this season. However the team was without Dixon, who is its leading scorer.
William & Mary led 73-58 midway into the second half. Grant Riller, who finished with 26, scored five straight points as Charleston closed to 82-72 with 4:42 left. David Cohn responded with a trey and The Tribe coasted home.
