CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Kyle Anderson made 5 of 7 3-pointers and scored 19 points to help Delaware hold off College of Charleston for a 64-58 win on Saturday night.
Kory Holden added 14 points, Cazmon Hayes scored 12 and Marvin King-Davis 10 for Delaware (2-13, 1-3 Colonial Athletic Association), which committed a season-low three turnovers.
The Blue Hens, who squandered a six-point lead with 42 seconds left in a 74-73 loss to UNC-Wilmington on Thursday, took a 58-51 lead when Holden made a pair of free throws with 52 seconds to play.
Joe Chealey hit a 3 and, after Eric Carter missed the front end of a one-and-one on the other end, two free throws to pull Charleston (5-12, 0-4) within two with 26 seconds left.
After King-Davis made two free throws, a jumper by Chealey made it 60-58 with :19 remaining but Hayes and Chivarsky Corbett made two free throws apiece from there to seal it.
Chealey led the Cougars with 17 points.
