CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) Ashton Moore went the length of the court and nailed a pull-up jumper with three seconds left to give The Citadel a 74-73 victory over East Tennessee State on Thursday.

Moore finished with 21 points and 11 assists, joining Cameron Wells and Marshall Harris III as the only players in program history to record a double-double with points and assists.

Moore had nine points and one assist over the final 4:03 to account for the final 11 points scored by the Bulldogs (11-17, 6-11 Southern). Meanwhile, Jalen Riley accounted for ETSU's final 10 points, going back-and-forth with Moore to cause seven lead changes during that span.

Riley put the Buccaneers (16-12, 8-9) ahead twice with 3-pointers in the final two minutes and hit a jumper with 11 seconds left to put ETSU up 73-72.

Jake Wright added 15 points for The Citadel, which made all 18 of its free throws.
