CONWAY, S.C. (AP) – Fletcher Magee and Eric Garcia combined for 50 points, Ryan Sawvell made the game-winning layup with 17 seconds left, and Wofford beat Coastal Carolina 75-74 on Monday night.

Magee scored 27 points and made 7 of 13 3-pointers, Garcia scored a career-high 23 points, and Wofford (5-7) outscored Coastal Carolina 24-12 in the paint and outrebounded them 37-25.

Trailing by two at halftime after 11 lead changes, Wofford twice rallied to a six-point lead, but the Chanticleers took a 50-48 lead and tied it at 58 and 61. Magee hit back-to-back 3s and Wofford pulled ahead 68-63 with 3:48 to go, but the Chanticleers closed to 73-70 on Jaylen Shaw’s jumper with 44 seconds left. After Sawvell’s layup, Coastal Carolina’s Artur Labinowicz made one of two free throws and a 3-pointer before time expired.

Shaw scored 19 points and Jos Williams-Powell added 15 for the Chanticleers (5-8).
