ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) _ Marion Busby scored 20 points, including the game-winning basket to extend the College of Charleston’s winning streak to 14 with a 67-66 victory over Central Florida on Saturday.

Butts made a steal near midcourt and Central Florida called time with 15.4 seconds remaining, trailing 67-66. Swaby drove the baseline, had his shot blocked by Rodney Conner, got the ball back, and missed a followup jumper, sealing Central Florida’s fate.
Thaddeous Delaney led Charleston (21-5, 14-1 TAAC) with a game-high 16 rebounds. Conner scored 14 points for Charleston and Patrick King added 11.
Darryl Davis scored 12 points for Central Florida, and Chuck Roberts came off the bench to add 10 points.
