CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Derrick Henry gave The Citadel its final lead, scored 21 points, and the Bulldogs presented coach Duggar Baucom with a victory over his former program, edging VMI 78-75 Saturday.

Baucom left VMI after 10 seasons where he coached the Keydets to four straight victories over the Bulldogs prior to Saturday.

Henry made two free throws then added layup with a minute left for a 77-73 lead. P.J. Boutte, the Bulldogs’ shortest player at 5-foot-9, grabbed 11 rebounds, seven off the offensive boards, including one with 10 seconds left that led to a free throw before VMI missed a free throw and final shot.

The Citadel (10-12, 3-6 Southern) shot only 36 percent and was outrebounded 55-39, but made 19 of 24 free throws to VMI’s 6 of 11 and took advantage of 20 Keydet turnovers.

Phillip Anglade had 16 points and 11 rebounds and QJ Peterson 14 points and 10 boards for VMI (6-14, 1-8).
