Christian Keeling scores career high 33 points; leads Charleston Southern to win over Radford

Here's Christian Keeling leaving the court at Laney for the final time his senior season.

Laney graduate Christian Keeling scored a career high 33 points to lead Charleston Southern to its first Big South Conference win, a 70-64 decision over Radford Wednesday. The Buccaneers improved to 5-11 overall and 1-4 in league play. Keeling made 11 of 19 field goals, including 3 of 6 from three point land. And he made all 8 of his free throws. Keeling also grabbed 6 rebounds in 33 minutes of action.

Charleston Southern coach Barclay Radebaugh had high praise for Keeling in the post game interview on the game's live webcast: "He's a special player. He's a money player." Coach Radebaugh later added that "if we get Christian Keeling to the free throw line, we can win some ball games."

Keeling was named by the Augusta Chronicle as our area's Co-Player of the Year, along with teammate Zep Jasper, last season when the pair led Laney to a 26-3 record. He leads Charleston Southern in scoring (14 points per game) and rebounding (6 per game). Twice this season he has been named the Big South Conference Freshman of the Week.
