Freshman Christian Keeling drops 20 in CSU's 17 point comeback road win

Charleston Southern freshman Christian Keeling, last season's Augusta Chronicle Co-Player of the Year from Laney, continued to play lights out basketball Tuesday, scoring 20 points on 8 of 11 shooting, and leading the Bucs with 7 rebounds in a 66-65 comeback (from 17 down) win at Abilene Christian. The Bucs improved to 2-2 and Keeling leads the team in scoring with 17.5 points per game on 58% field goal and 44% three point field goal shooting. Plus the 6'3" guard is second on the team in rebounding with 6.5 per game. Wow!

Christian is one of the fiercest competitors, and one of the most productive players, that I've seen in my three decades spent in Augusta's gyms. I've been following his first four Charleston Southern game closely. 

If you need to catch up on your Christian Keeling updates during the first two week of his college playing days, here is a list of links to AugBball features of him:

This is the story from Saturday of Christian's pivotal last minute of play that seemed to put away USC Upstate that ended in heartbreak. The end of that story is that Tuesday (last night) we learned that Christian is more than capable of coming back strong after encountering adversity.
