GREENSBORO, N.C. – Charles Bryant’s game-high 19 points led visiting Averett University to a 74-62 basketball win at Guilford College Tuesday night.

Bryant had 11 points on five-for-five shooting in the first half, which helped Averett (3-1) to a 39-32 halftime lead. The Cougars outscored Guilford, 11-4, in the first six and a half minutes of the second half and built a 19-point lead before the Quakers (3-1) rallied.

Guilford’s Trevor Mayo scored 10 of his 11 points in the second half and helped spark the comeback. His free throw with 4:31 remaining capped a 17-8 Quakers’ run that drew the hosts to within 61-54 with 4:31 remaining.

A Will Freeman layup with 1:46 remaining made it a 67-62 game and got the Quakers back into the contest. Guilford forced a missed shot at the other end of the floor, but Averett’s Trevor West came up with the offensive rebound and the Quakers were forced to start fouling. The Cougars made seven of eight free throws in the final minutes to secure the win.

James Contreras, Jr. made four of those free throws and finished with 12 points. Bradley Robinson also tallied 12 and Trevor West added 11. Carter Jones collected seven points and a game-high 13 rebounds.
Freeman’s 14 points paced three Quakers in double-figure scoring. He also collected six rebounds and blocked two shots. Mayo added eight rebounds and three assists to his 11 points.
