CINCINNATI (AP) -- Karl Cochran scored 20 points and Wofford overcame a 14-point deficit to edge Xavier 56-55 Saturday and win for the fourth time in five games.

After the Musketeers tied it at 55 with 8 seconds left on Brad Redford's 3-pointer, Lee Skinner hit 1 of 2 free throws a second later. Xavier's last possession ended with a turnover.

The Terriers (6-6), who trailed 30-16 at the 4:47 mark, opened the second half with an 18-6 run to tie it at 40 with 12:59 remaining. However, Wofford didn't pull ahead until Spencer Collins' 3-pointer made it 49-47 with 3:10 left. Spencer finished with 17 points.

The Terriers shot only 36.2 percent from the field (17 of 47) compared to 47.8 percent for Xavier (22 of 46), but Wofford made 15 of 17 foul shots and the Musketeers just 8 of 16.

Travis Taylor's 20 points and 11 rebounds led Xavier (7-4).
