CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Markis McDuffie had 24 points including three 3-pointers in the final six minutes as Wichita State held on to defeat Appalachian State 82-76 at the Charleston Classic on Friday.

The Shockers (2-2) held a 10-point lead in the second half of their opener here against Davidson before falling 57-53.

But this time, they prevailed after Appalachian State wiped away a seven-point deficit and led 66-61 with 6:18 remaining.

That's when Wichita State finished with a flourish, outscoring the Mountaineers (1-3) 21-10 the rest of the way.

Wichita State will face Alabama in the fifth-place game Sunday.
