CHARLESTON, S.C. - Jon Moore scored 16 points and Luke Engelken added 15, but Gardner-Webb could not get over the hump in the second half and fell, 72-61, at Charleston Southern.

The loss snapped a dominant stretch of six-straight wins by Gardner-Webb (9-20, 4-12 Big South) over Charleston Southern, which dated back to the 2007-2008 season.

Moore and Engelken's shooting helped the Runnin' Bulldogs make a late push after Charleston Southern stretched a 34-27 halftime lead to a 59-43 cushion with 5:47 left in the game.


The pair keyed a 10-0 run by the 'Dogs that was capped by an Engelken trey with 2:37 left that made the score 59-53. Moore assisted on that bucket

Charleston Southern halted the run with a Jemarco Warren layup, and GWU would not be able to get the lead back under eight points the rest of the way.

Warren led Charleston Southern with 20 points, leading a group of four players in double digits for the Buccaneers.

In addition to Moore and Engelken, Gardner-Webb got 11 points from Laron Buggs - his third double-figure scoring game in a row - and eight points from Santoine Butler.

No other GWU player had more than five points in the game, as the 'Dogs shot 42.6 percent from the floor (23-of-54) and were outscored at the free throw line 23-8, as CSU made 23-of-29 chances (79.3 percent) in what proved to be the only major difference in the game's outcome.

Gardner-Webb will close out the regular season at home, beginning with a Thursday night date (Feb. 24) with Radford. Opening tip is set for 7:00 pm in Paul Porter Arena.
