Trailing 65-54 with less than 6 minutes to play, Torrey Craig made consecutive 3-pointers for SC Upstate to cut the lead to five, 65-60 with 4:12 remaining.

After Perez's 3-pointer pushed the lead to 68-60 with 3:04 left to play, Jodd Maxey converted a layup a minute later to cut the Spartans' deficit to six, 68-62.
