CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) -- Andrew Lawrence scored 17 of his 22
points in the second half to rally College of Charleston to a
71-67 victory over Boston College for seventh place in the
Charleston Classic on Sunday.



The Cougars (2-2) avoided going 0-3 on their home floor, using a
19-8 run to start the second half and take control. Lawrence
began the surge with two three-point plays. Anthony Thomas had
two straight driving layups as Charleston took the lead for
good.



Boston College (1-3) got within a bucket several times down the
stretch, the last on Olivier Hanlan's foul shots with 28 seconds
to go. But Lawrence made four of six free throws to keep the
Cougars out front.



Anthony Stitt had 14 points and Thomas 10 for Charleston.



Patrick Heckmann led the Eagles with 18 points. Boston College
made seven 3-pointers the first half but was just 3-of-15 after
that.



Boston College and College of Charleston were looking for a
feel-good finish to the tournament. The Eagles had lost by
double-digits to No. 16 Baylor and Dayton in its first two games
while the home-standing Cougars were beaten by St. John's and
Auburn.



First year Charleston coach Doug Wojcik also ended his personal
four-game losing streak at the Charleston Classic. The then
Tulsa coach dropped his final two tourney games on this court a
season ago.



Boston College took control early with Lonnie Jackson hitting a
pair of 3-pointers on the way to 19-12 lead midway through the
first half. The Cougars rallied to cut things to 23-22 before
the Eagles took off again.



Heckmann had two 3-pointers and Jackson added his third of the
half to move in front 34-27 before the Cougars began their
decisive stretch.



Both teams came into the game shorthanded. Boston College was
without sophomore Ryan Anderson, who was out with an ankle
injury. Anderson scored 39 points in the first two tournament
games.



Charleston was without junior starter Trent Wiedeman, also out
with a bad ankle. He had scored 18 points in the Cougars' two
losses.
