CLINTON, S.C. (AP) - Al'Lonzo Coleman notched a double-double, scoring 24 points and pulling down 11 rebounds, to lead Presbyterian in a 75-71 win over Furman Tuesday night for the Blue Hose's first win against the Paladins in more than two decades.

Khalid Mutakabbir added 19 points for the Blue Hose (5-5), who beat Furman for the first time since 1989 and snapped a four-game losing streak in the series. Coleman was 8 of 9 from the foul line and Mutakabbir was 6 of 7 for Presbyterian, which shot 92.9 percent (26 of 28) from the charity stripe in the win.

The Paladins shot 70.8 percent (17 of 24) on free throws.

Furman led 37-33 at the break and 52-51 midway through the second half, but a pair of Coleman free throws plus a layup sparked a 10-0 run and Presbyterian never trailed again.

Brandon Sebirumbi scored 20 points to lead Furman (6-5).
