Grant Riller scored 24 points, Jarrell Brantley poured in 23 more, including the winning layup, and Charleston edged Hofstra 86-85 on Saturday night to take sole possession of first place in the Colonial Athletic Association.
Trailing by a point after Hofstra's Justin Wright-Foreman sank a 3-pointer with 18 seconds left, Charleston (18-6, 9-3) took the ball down the right side of the court and got it inside to Brantley, who dribbled twice to his right before breaking left to drop in the winning bucket with three seconds remaining.
Joe Chealey added 19 points and Nick Harris had 10 for Charleston, which shot 57 percent and got 18 assists on its 30 baskets to pick up its sixth straight win.
Wright-Foreman finished with 24 points to lead Hofstra (14-10, 7-5), Eli Pemberton added 20, Jalen Ray got 11 and Kenny Wormley 10.
