CoC stuns 9th-ranked UNC, 82-79, in OT

Charleston, S.C. – Andrew Goudelock (Lilburn, Ga.) scored 24 points, including a game-tying 3-pointer with 2.2 seconds left in regulation, that helped College of Charleston to a stunning 82-79 win in overtime over 9th-ranked North Carolina before 5,072 at Carolina First Arena on Monday.

Charleston, which improved to 6-0 at home, is now 8-6 overall. The Cougars knocked off their first nationally ranked team since upsetting No. 3 North Carolina, 66-64, on Dec. 5, 1998 at the Charlotte Coliseum. Charleston is now 5-15 all-time and broke a seven-game losing streak against nationally ranked teams. North Carolina fell to 11-4.

“We played well and Drew (Andrew Goudelock) made a great shot to send the game into overtime,” said Charleston coach Bobby Cremins. “The first half was sensational, but in the second it looked like it would be a great effort by College of Charleston and another North Carolina win.

“The kids hung in there and were able to stay with Carolina. This was a great win for the College of Charleston, our city and the Southern Conference.”
