    SPARTANBURG, S.C. -- Chalmers Rogers' only points came on a layup with 3 seconds left to lift South Carolina-Upstate over East Tennessee State 60-59 on Sunday in the Atlantic-Sun opener for both teams.

    The Spartans (2-6), who were winless against the Buccaneers in the teams previous six meetings, led 55-50 with 5:35 to play.

    The Buccaneers (3-3) then went on a 9-3 run and took a 59-58 lead on Adam Sollazzo's free throw with 54 seconds to go. Sollazzo missed the second foul shot but came down with his own rebound. Mike Smith then missed a shot for ETSU which got another offensive rebound, by Tommy Hubbard, with 17 seconds on the clock.

    However, Hubbard then turned the ball over setting up Rogers shot.

    Torrey Craig had a double-double with 18 points and 15 rebounds for SC Upstate.

    Isiah Brown led three players in double figures for ETSU with 16 points. Smith had 15 and Sollazzo 11.
