CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Christian Keeling scored 26 points and Phlandrous Fleming Jr. scored 20 to help Charleston Southern beat Gardner-Webb 83-68 on Sunday to end its six-game losing streak.

Javis Howard and Ty Jones each scored 12 points and Jones grabbed seven rebounds for the Buccaneers (7-12, 2-6 Big South).
