Mortimer's late floater lifts SC State over Furman, 69-67

GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) Eric Eaves scored 17 points, Tashombe Riley had his second-career double-double and Greg Riley hit the winner with four seconds left as South Carolina State beat Furman 69-67 on Friday night to snap a three-game skid.

Riley, a junior, had 14 points and a season-high 11 rebounds, James Richardson scored 10 points and Mortimer added nine with four assists.

South Carolina State (3-7) matched its biggest lead when Mortimer's jumper with 12:23 to play made it 55-44. Daniel Fowler scored nine-straight points to give the Paladins their first lead, 62-60, of the second half with 4:07 remaining. Moments later, SCSU's Ed Stephens and Fowler traded 3s and Furman led by two, but Riley's offensive rebound of his own blocked layup attempt made it 67-all with 33 seconds left. After Fowler was called for an offensive foul, Mortimer's floater won it.

Fowler, who scored 14 of his 16 points in the second half, missed a potential winning 3 for the Paladins (6-5).
