Hughes, who scored 19 points in the game, was fouled as he pulled up from near the center-court logo with 0.8 seconds left to play. The three-pointer tied the game at 100 and Hughes went to the line for a chance to take the lead.
Hughes buried the free throw, too.
The Mountaineers were unable to get a shot off on their final possession and Georgia Southern improved to 3–5 in Sun Belt play.
