Senior Sean Sheldon knocked down a pair of free throws with 32 seconds left and junior Omar Prewitt drew a charge on the defensive end in the final 10 seconds as the William and Mary men’s basketball team answered a furious Charleston rally to pull out a 63-61 road win on Thursday night.
The Green and Gold led by as many as 21 points early in the second half, but the Cougars (10-6, 2-3 CAA) rallied to take a three-point lead with 1:34 left. W&M (12-4, 4-1 CAA) made the plays in the final minute to pull out its fourth-straight win.
Sophomore David Cohn led four Tribe players in double figures with 15 points on 5-of-8 shooting, including a 3-of-5 effort from 3-point range. Senior Terry Tarpey finished with 11 points and seven rebounds, while Sheldon and sophomore Greg Malinowski added 10 points each.
