Furman beats Wofford 78-69 behind Acox's career-best 25

GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) Kris Acox scored a career-high 25 points on 12-of-14 shooting, including his 1,000th career point, and Furman held off Wofford 78-69 on Saturday to snap a two-game skid and remain locked in a top-three finish in Southern Conference standings.

Geoff Beans hit a career-high six 3-pointers for 18 points for the Paladins (21-10, 14-4), who can still win a share of the conference regular season title.

Cameron Jackson's layup put Wofford up 52-46 early in the second half. Acox made back-to-back layups and a dunk and Furman led 55-54 with 11:52 left. Wofford led 58-57 after Fletcher Magee's 3 and free throw, trailed, then tied it at 60 on Derrick Brooks' layup.
