CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Trent Wiedeman scored 17 points to lead College of Charleston to a 75-58 victory over Towson Friday night in the season opener for both teams.

The Cougars shot 56.3 percent for the game, including 44.4 percent on 3-pointers. The winning margin could have been larger, but the Cougars shot only 58.6 percent from the free-throw line.
