CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) -Cameron Wells scored 16 points and had seven rebounds and seven assists to lead The Citadel to its first Southern Conference win of the season, a 57-51 victory over Western Carolina on Thursday night.
The Bulldogs (6-18, 1-14) had lost 21 league games in a row going back to last February.
The Catamounts (7-17, 3-11) led the entire first half before The Citadel took its first lead at 33-32 on Daniel Eykyn's jumper with 16:54 left.
Western Carolina led 45-44 with 3:40 left when Wells' two free throws put the Bulldogs ahead for good. Austin Dahn followed with back-to-back 3-pointers, and The Citadel would lead by at least four points the rest of the way.
The Bulldogs were outrebounded 45-29 by the Catamounts, but Western Carolina made just three of its 17 3-pointers, while The Citadel was 10-of-31 from behind the arc.
Dahn scored 12 points and Zach Urbanus added 11 points for the Bulldogs.
