CHARLOTTE -- Kendall Hargrove scored 11 points off the bench, but Mount Olive saw its four-game win streak snapped after a 68-55 loss to in-state Conference Carolinas foe Queens University on Wednesday evening.

Ewon Wright and Mahamed Ibrahim provided eight points apiece and combined to hit four 3-pointers. Dory Hines collected eight steals for the Trojans, who lost for just the second time in their last 11 outings.

MOC (10-9 overall, 7-6 CC) trailed by as many as 17 points in the game and endured two four-minute scoring droughts. Queens owned a 34-20 edge in rebounding and scored 46 points in the paint.

The Trojans play host to in-state foe Lees-McRae on Saturday.
