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.

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.
