CLINTON, S.C. -- Naji Hibbert scored 18 points as Gardner-Webb staved off a late charge to beat Presbyterian 67-58 on Saturday.

The Runnin' Bulldogs (9-10, 2-2 Big South) extended a second half lead to 15 with 8:42 left, but Presbyterian (4-15, 0-4) cut it to two points with 3:01 to go. Gardner-Webb responded with a Jerome Hill layup and a Hibbert 3-pointer on consecutive possessions to quell the threat.

Tyler Strange had 17, while Hill and Donta Harper had 10 as Gardner-Webb shot 45 percent, including 7 of 19 from beyond the arc.

Presbyterian was led by William Truss with 20 points, who was 7 of 7 from the floor. Markus Terry added 12 points. Presbyterian hit on just 2 of 13 3-point attempts.

Gardner-Webb was down five with 5:08 left in the first, but scored the next 11 points en route to a two-point advantage at the break at 30-28.
