NCAA Game Summary - The Citadel at Presbyterian



(Saturday, February 23)

Final Score: Presbyterian 68, The Citadel 65

Clinton, SC (Sports Network) - Khalid Mutakabbir poured in 25 points as the Presbyterian Blue Hose managed to hang on for a 68-65 victory over The Citadel Bulldogs in a BracketBuster matchup at the Templeton Center.

Eric Washington added 11 points and four assists for the Blue Hose (8-21) as they picked up their second win in three outings.

Mike Groselle finished with 15 points and nine rebounds for The Citadel (7-20), which also received 14 points and nine boards from P.J. Horgan. Marshall Harris III and Matt Van Scyoc scored 12 and 10 points, respectively, as the Bulldogs suffered a setback for the fifth time in six games.

Although the Bulldogs took an early seven-point lead, PC took a narrow, 30-28 lead into the intermission after it outscored the visitors, 26-12, in the paint in the first half.

The Citadel was able to tie the score at 55 with 7:55 left in regulation, but Mutakabbir put the Blue Hose back in front as he completed a traditional three-point play on his squad's next possession. PC held onto the lead the rest of the way. The Bulldogs had a chance in the closing seconds trailing by three points, but they did not get to attempt a game-tying triple as Harris III turned the ball over just before the buzzer.

Despite the loss, the Bulldogs held a 30-23 edge in the rebounding battle and outscored the hosts, 21-14, at the charity stripe. However, The Citadel's strong performance on the glass was not enough to overcome its 19 turnovers.
