ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) -- Ashton Moore scored 24, Matt Van Scyoc added 20 and 11th-seeded The Citadel beat No. 6 seed UNCG 86-76 on Friday to advance to the semifinals of the Southern Conference tournament.

The Citadel will face Wofford (17-12) in a semifinal game on Saturday.

Quinton Marshall's dunk, with 11:44 left in the first half, tied the game at 13 and sparked a 11-2 run by The Citadel (7-25), giving the Bulldogs a 22-15 lead. They wouldn't trail again.
