CLINTON, S.C. (AP) - Christian Keeling had his second-career double-double, Javis Howard scored 14 points on 7-of-7 shooting and Charleston Southern never trailed in a 73-52 victory over Presbyterian on Thursday night.

Keeling, a freshman guard, finished with 24 points and a career-high 11 rebounds. Raemond Robinson added 10 points for Charleston Southern (6-12, 2-5 Big South), which has won two of its last three games after losing seven straight.

Robinson hit two 3-pointers and Keeling converted a 3-point play during an 11-0 run to start the game. Robinson hit a third 3 and Patrick Wallace added another to make it 17-5 and Charleston Southern led by double figures the rest of the way.
