CHARLESTON, S.C. — Jamar Diggs scored a career-high 22 points, including 11 in overtime and the game-tying basket at the end of regulation to lead Wofford to an 82-79 victory over George Mason at the Charleston Classic on Sunday night.

Cameron Rundles also had his career high with 26 points for the Terriers (2-3), who went 2-1 and took third in the eight-team tournament.

George Mason (3-2) led by seven points and halftime and was still ahead 65-63 with 20 seconds to go as Luke Hancock scored four straight points.

However, Diggs drove through several defenders to hit a tying layup. Hancock threw the ball away on George Mason's subsequent possession.

Hancock had 17 points to lead the Patriots, who finished 1-2 at this event.
