    CHARLESTON, S.C. -- Demetrius Nelson scored 28 points to lead The Citadel in a 75-54 rout of Furman on Thursday night.

    John Brown added 16 points and Zach Urbanus had 11 for the Bulldogs (19-10, 14-4 Southern Conference), extending their winning streak to 11 games. The Bulldogs remain in second place in the SoCon, trailing conference-leading Davidson by two games with two to go.

    Nelson and Brown also grabbed eight rebounds apiece for The Citadel.

    Bryson Barnes paced the Paladins (6-21, 4-14), scoring 10 and grabbing 12 rebounds.

    The game was close throughout the first half, and the Bulldogs managed a three-point lead at halftime. But the Bulldogs opened the second on a 20-7 run, dominating the frame en route to victory.

    It was the third straight loss for Furman, which dropped a 74-69 overtime game against The Citadel on Jan. 15.
