SPARTANBURG, S.C. - Dallastown High School graduate Four McGlynn nailed a game-winning, half-court shot at the buzzer to propel Towson to a 63-60 victory over South Carolina Upstate in the opening round of the CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament inside the Hodge Center on Wednesday night.

The 6-foot, 2-inch sophomore guard finished with nine points, all on 3-pointers. That matches his season average.

The Tigers (24-10), who trailed by as many as 15 points, took a 60-58 lead with seven seconds remaining on a driving layup by senior Jerrelle Benimon. After Ty Green of Upstate scored to tie the game with 1.6 seconds left, McGlynn launched a 3-pointer from 45-feet out that hit nothing but net as the buzzer sounded, giving Towson its first ever postseason victory.

Benimon led the Tigers with 20 points and nine rebounds.

Towson moves on to the second round of the CIT where the Tigers will take on East Tennessee State on Friday at 7 p.m.

Upstate finished at 19-15.

Towson's meeting with East Tennessee State on Friday will be the first between the programs on the hardwood.
