SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) -- Torrey Craig scored 20 points, including the go-ahead layup with 18 seconds remaining, as South Carolina-Upstate edged Jacksonville State 50-48 Thursday night for its fourth straight victory.

Craig also grabbed 13 rebounds for the Spartans (6-2), including Brian Williams' attempt at a winning 3-point shot for the Gamecocks (2-6) with 2 seconds left.

Jacksonville State, which has lost four straight, led 30-17 at halftime, but the Spartans used a 10-0 run to get within 36-31 with 10:34 left in the game.

Two free throws by Craig gave SC-Upstate its first lead, 46-45, with 3:39 left, and it never trailed again although the Gamecocks tied it twice.

Craig was the only player to score in double figures for either team. The Spartans shot 34 percent (18 of 53) and the Eagles 38.5 percent (15 of 39), including 26.3 percent (5 of 19) in the second half.
