GAFFNEY, S.C. -- Freshman Dory Hines flirted with his first-ever, triple-double, but Mount Olive endured a 78-71 loss to Limestone College on the Conference Carolinas men's basketball scene Saturday.

Hines, a Kinston High alum, recorded 16 points, seven rebounds and seven assists. Derek Staton emerged the Trojans' offensive leader with 22 points, while Brandon Allen supplied 14 points and a team-high eight rebounds.

Ewon Wright provided 10 points.

Limestone raced to a 19-point lead in the opening half, only to see Mount Olive close the gap to 44-33 at halftime. The Trojans grabbed a 58-56 lead with less than 10 minutes left in the second half.

The Saints (14-3 overall) used an 8-2 run to break open a tight game in the final two minutes, and claim a regular-season sweep of the Trojans.

Mount Olive (10-8 overall, 5-5 CC) entertains archrival Barton on Wednesday. Tip-off is 7:30 p.m. at Kornegay Arena.
