Box Score

ST. LOUIS, Mo. -- The men's basketball team came within a hair of topping Webster for the first time since 2010 but gave up a layup as time expired to allow Webster to slip away with a two-point win.

Tim Daniel continued his assault on the single-season scoring record as he led Greenville with 22 points and also gathered 11 rebounds.

DeAndre Brown posted an 18 point outing, and Shane Smith had 17 points.

Andrew Scott recorded 10 rebounds, and Michael Hohm gave Greenville three steals.

The Panthers led by 13 points with 10 and a half minutes to play but were caught with six men on the basketball court to pick up a technical foul.  Webster converted the penalty free throws and got back in the game.

The Panthers made 35 buckets, including 19 three-pointers, and were hurt by a 68 percent 17-of-25 showing at the free throw line.

The Panthers (6-11, 5-5 SLIAC) are tied with six teams for fourth place in the conference standings.
