SPARTANBURG, S.C. – Chevez Goodwin recorded his first career double-double, scoring 16 points and grabbing 13 rebounds, as the Wofford men's basketball team pummeled Kentucky Christian 112-58 on Thursday.

The victory represents the first time Wofford has scored 100 or more points since its 109-92 victory over The Citadel last season (1/6/18), and the second time this season that Wofford has defeated an opponent by 50 or more points (vs. Mars Hill, 11/23/18).

Wofford now sits at 7-3 overall and hosts Coastal Carolina on Sunday at 2 p.m.

Five Terriers scored in double figures for the second time this season, led by Magee's game-high 27 points on 8-for-12 shooting from 3-point range. Nathan Hoover had 18 points, Cameron Jackson scored 16 and Matthew Pegram totaled 10 points as 12 different players saw action in the game.

Wofford established dominance right from the start, jumping out to a 11-0 lead with Ryan Larson dishing out assists on the first three buckets. Magee, who failed to hit a 3 for the first time in 61 contests at Kansas on Tuesday, was hot from the start, going 3-for-4 from downtown.

As the half wore on, Jackson slammed down back-to-back dunks and Donovan Theme-Love found Goodwin under the bucket for another jam to put Wofford up 33-13.

Wofford would extend its lead to 29 going into the break (59-30) as Hoover hit two free throws to cap off the scoring in the period.

The 3-ball continued to fall for the Terriers in the second, as Magee hit a pair and Hoover drained one from the corner, giving Wofford a 75-34 lead with 14:44 to play. With the score 84-38, Magee was locked in, hitting three more 3-pointers to give him 27 points on eight 3s.

After a pair of dunks from Michael Manning Jr., Goodwin put an exclamation point on the game when Drew Cottrell grabbed a board and Goodwin slammed it home to give Wofford the 112-58 victory.
