    DELAND, Fla. -- Garfield Blair scored 16 points and had 12 rebounds to lead Stetson to a 56-50 victory over South Carolina-Upstate on Monday night.

    Blair made a 3-pointer and a 16-foot jumper to cap a 10-0 run that extended the Hatters' lead to 54-47 with 2:05 left.

    Bobby Davis led the Spartans (2-13, 1-5 Atlantic Sun Conference) with a 19-point effort, while Nick Schneiders added 13 points.

    The Hatters (7-8, 4-3) overcame a 10-point deficit at 43-33 following an 18-7 Spartans run in the first 8 minutes of the second. Blair sparked an 11-0 Stetson run from that point with a driving layup, and Brandon Williams closed the run on a 3-pointer with 7:02 remaining to put Stetson ahead 44-43.

    The Spartans regained the lead at 47-44, but Stetson's Mark Lohuis countered with a 3-pointer and Tim Lang's layup marked the final lead change at 49-47 with 3:22 left.
