Charleston Southern's Kelvin Martin posted his seventh double-double of the season with 17 points and 12 rebounds and became the fourth-leading rebounder in Big South history.

UNC Asheville led 16-12 before a 25-14 run put the Bucs ahead 37-30 and they never trailed again. UNC Asheville (13-7, 8-1) tied the game 84-84 but Charleston Southern outscored the Bulldogs 7-4 over the final three minutes.
