MONDAY NIGHT HOOPS

N.C. STATE 62, Loyola (MD) (Greyhounds, 3,501 students, Baltimore, MD) 62 – Ben McCauley had 16 points and North Carolina State got a key defensive stop in the final seconds to hold off Loyola of Maryland on Monday night.

Courtney Fells added 11 points for the Wolfpack (8-2), who twice blew double-digit leads before finally bouncing back from last week's last-second loss to Marquette.

Marquis Sullivan scored 21 points for the Greyhounds (4-8), who had a chance to win while trailing 61-60 in the final 20 seconds. But as Jamal Barney drove the left side, McCauley stepped out and forced him into a tough fadeaway shot that he missed.

VIRGINIA TECH 75, Charleston Southern (Bucaneers, 3,000 students, Charleston, SC) 66 – A.D. Vassallo and Malcolm Delaney each scored 16 points in Virginia Tech's win over Charleston Southern on Monday night.

Charleston Southern (5-6) led 23-15 with 10:36 left in the first half, before Virginia Tech (9-4) scored 10 unanswered points to take over the lead. Virginia Tech had eight steals, while the Buccaneers committed 12 turnovers.

J.T. Thompson added 15 points and Allen had 11 for the Hokies.

Jamarco Warren scored 22 points, with 12 coming on 3-pointers for Charleston Southern.

BOSTON COLLEGE 84, San Francisco (Dons, 8,447 students, San Francisco, CA) 62 – Joe Trapani scored 22 points and grabbed 11 rebounds to lead Boston College to its eighth straight win.
