SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) - Dimeco Childress hit a free throw with 1.2 seconds left to give East Tennessee State a 66-65 win against Wofford on Saturday night.

Wofford's (12-15, 7-9) Ian Chadwick scored 10 points in the final 39 seconds, including three free-throws with two seconds left to tie the game at 65-65.

On the in bounds pass, however, Chadwick collided with Childress at midcourt. Chadwick was whistled for his fifth foul.
