David Kralj came off the bench to score 10 poins and Josh Coleman, also coming off the bench, grabbed a game-high 11 rebounds.

The difference of the game came on the boards, turnovers and free throws. The home-standing Terriers grabbed 34 rebounds compared to 29 for CCU and 13 of those were offensive which led to 13 second-chance points. CCU’s 12 turnovers led to 12 points for Wofford and the Terriers hit 26-34 free throws (77%).

CCU scored 10 second-chance points on its eight offensive rebounds and scored nine points off Wofford’s eight turnovers. CCU did shoot 75 percent at the free throw line, but only attempted 20, making 15.

Jackson’s 24 points led four Terriers in double digits. Wofford’s leading scorer Fletcher Magee finished with 18 points, but only hit five of his 14 field goal attempts and only hit three of his 11 three’s.

Nathan Hoover scored 15 for Wofford, with 10 of those coming at the free throw line and Storm Murphy had 13.

The Terriers jumped out to a 9-0 lead in the opening minutes of the first half and carried that momentum on to a 35-21 halftime lead.

Jackson led the way with 12 points on five-of 10 shooting. Magee had nine points as Wofford shot 38 percent in the opening 20 minutes.

CCU got seven points from Tommy Burton as the Chants struggled shooting in the opening half. CCU shot 38 percent from the field and hit three of its eight three-point field goals.
