Charleston Southern tops High Point 97-93 in triple-OT

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) Saah Nimley hit a school-record-tying eight 3-pointers and scored 38 points but it was his layup and four free throws that provided Charleston Southern's final six points in a 97-93 triple-overtime victory over High Point on Saturday to give the Buccaneers a share of the Big South regular-season title with the Panthers.

The teams tied for the title for the second time in three seasons. High Point won it outright last year. Charleston Southern claimed the No. 1 seed into the conference tournament. Both teams have first-round byes.

Arlon Harper, who finished with 20 points, made a 3-pointer to force the third overtime for Charleston Southern after Nimley scored the final five points for the Buccaneers in the first extra period.
