TIGERVILLE, S.C. - Newberry College exploded for 55 second-half points to defeat North Greenville College, 87-63, in men's basketball action Wednesday night.  The Indians (9-10, 3-4 SAC) shot 60 percent from the floor to sweep the season series with the Crusaders (4-14).

After clinging to a 32-21 halftime lead, Newberry broke loose in the second period with over 70 percent shooting, going seven-for-nine on three-point baskets.  David Conrady's squad pushed the lead to 29 at 80-51 near the eight-minute mark, and Newberry's reserves finished the game from there.

Rashaad Carter (N. Charleston, S.C.) scored a game-high 24 points, marking his second 20-plus-point performance in three tries.  Tommy Burke (Newberry, S.C.) converted on three treys on his way to 15 points, and Brandon Moses (Aiken, S.C.) made five baskets for 11 points.

Beau Trager and Rob Wilton scored in double figures for the Crusaders, notching 13 and 12, respectively.
