LEXINGTON, Va. -- Freshman guard QJ Peterson scored 25 points in his VMI debut as the Keydets defeated The Citadel 82-71 in a season opener Friday at the All-Military Classic.

Rodney Glasgow added 20 points, and Jordan Weethee had a double-double with 10 points and 11 rebounds.

The Citadel had led throughout much of the first half and carried the lead into the second half until Jarid Watson made two free throws to give VMI a 51-50 lead with 11:01 remaining.

Tied again at the 8:31 mark, the Keydets went on a 20-2 run to go up 76-58 on Glasgow's 3-pointer with 4:36 left. The Bulldogs didn't get closer than 11 points after that.
