CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) — Fletcher Magee tied the school record with 11 3-pointers and scored a career-high 45 points to lead Wofford to a 74-64 win over Chattanooga on Saturday.
Magee was 17 of 26 from the field, 11 of 19 behind arc, for the Terriers’ first 40-point game since January of 2001. Magee, a junior, moved into Wofford’s Top 10 in career scoring with 1,696 points but was 12 behind the school single game record of 57 points by Daddy Neal against Erskine in the 1952-53 season.
Magee had 30 points in the second half. His last 3, with 32 seconds left, ended a 5-0 Chattanooga run that cut the Terriers’ lead in half. Trevor Stumpe then hit four free throws to ice the game.
Wofford (19-9, 10-5 Southern Conference), which won the first game 71-67, trailed 32-30 at the half.
Makale Foreman had 18 points for the Mocs (9-20, 3-13) with Nat Dixon adding 16.
At one point Magee scored 14 straight for the Terriers, assisted on the next basket and then scored the next eight, ending with his last-minute 3. His total was a season high for the Southern Conference and is tied for the sixth most in the NCAA this season.
