Terriers tame GSU
Wofford gets big SoCon win

Georgia Southern guard Jelani Hewitt, right, pleads with the referee to call a foul on Wofford defender Justin Gordon while trying to get free for a shot at the end of the first half at Hanner Fieldhouse Thursday.
In a game where two Georgia Southern players reached 1,000 career points, nobody on GSU’s bench was celebrating. The Eagles went on a 23-12 run during the final 12 minutes, but dug themselves into too big of a hole early in the second half as the Wofford Terriers won 74-64 on Thursday in Hanner Fieldhouse. The Eagles (9-11, 2-3 Southern Conference) trailed by as many as 17 points when Wofford’s Karl Cochran hit a jumper to put the Terriers (9-10, 4-3) ahead 58-41.
