CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) - Keegan Bell scored 20 points and led a second-half rally as Chattanooga edged Savannah State 65-63 Saturday night in nonconference action.

Deric Rudolph, who came off the bench to lead Savannah State (1-5) with 15 points, hit a 3-pointer to tie it 60-60 with 47 seconds left. Bell's two free throws with 26 seconds remaining gave Chattanooga the lead for good. The Tigers drew within 64-63 with five seconds left but Bell hit one of two foul shots. Preston Blackmon missed a 3-pointer just before the final buzzer.

Chris Early had 15 points for Chattanooga. Joshua Montgomery scored 12 for Savannah State.
