Freshman swingman Bolden Brace hit a fall-away, put-back jumper at the buzzer to give Northeastern a 73-72 victory over College of Charleston in a thrilling contest at TD Arena on Thursday night.

After trailing 37-21 at the half, Northeastern hit another gear in the second frame, outscoring the Cougars 52-35 after the break. Charleston scored 11 points off of 9 NU turnovers in the first half, but NU cleaned things up in the second half, turning the ball over just three times.
