High Point beats Presbyterian 63-61

Dec 4, 2009 - 3:23 AM CLINTON, S.C.(AP) -- Tehran Cox's layup at the buzzer propelled High Point to a 63-61 win against Presbyterian in the Big South Conference opener for both teams on Thursday night.

Nick Barbour hit a pair of free throws to put the Panthers (4-2) up 61-58 with 34 seconds to play.

After Chase Holmes missed a jumper for Presbyterian and Eugene Harris bricked a free throw for High Point, Travis Smith nailed a 3 for the Blue Hose with 5 seconds left to tie the game at 61-all.

High Point took their final timeout to set up the final shot with 3 seconds left - all Cox would need to find the basket.

Jake Troyli scored 16 points, Holmes 14 and Khalid Mutakabbir 10 for the Blue Hose (2-6).
