W. Carolina outlasts The Citadel 100-95, Pughsley scores 28

CULLOWHEE, N.C. (AP) Elijah Pughsley scored a career-high 28 points, Haboubacar Mutombo a career-best 22 and Devin Peterson added 20 with 10 rebounds and Western Carolina outlasted The Citadel 100-95 to earn its first Southern Conference win of the season on Thursday night.

Freshman Preston Parks led The Citadel (9-12, 2-6) with 28 points while Zane Najdawi and Leandro Allende each scored 23, a season best for Allende.

Najdawi converted a 3-point play with a minute left that pulled The Citadel within one, 93-92, but Pughsley dropped in a 3-pointer on the next possession and then he and Peterson combined for four straight free throws in the last 22 seconds to seal the win.
