Lindsay's lay-up lifts Spiders past Charlotte

Richmond, VA (WWBT)- In Richmond's conference opener, the Spiders jumped out to an eleven point lead, only to see Charlotte come back and win by five.  Saturday saw Richmond once again give up an advantage to the 49ers, but this time Chris Mooney's team would prevail.

Cedrick Lindsay scored on a lay-up with 16 seconds remaining to give the Spiders a 53-52 win over Charlotte.  Richmond would jump out to a 12 point lead in the first half, but Charlotte trimmed to lead to six by the break, as the Spiders led 25-19 at halftime.

The second half saw Richmond again open up a lead, this time by nine points, but again the 49ers chipped away and tied the game at 51 after Pierria Henry's steal and finish with 1:34 to play.  Later, Henry would steal an inbounds pass, get fouled on his way to the hoop, and connect on one of two free throws to give Charlotte the 52-51 advantage.  Lindsay's eventual game-winner came as the shot clock neared zero, and several 49er chances in the final seconds didn't fall, including one shot that was altered by the hand of Greg Robbins.

Kendall Anthony scored a game-high 17 points to lead the Spiders, while Darrius Garrett pulled down 12 boards. 

Richmond improves to 14-14, 5-8 in the Atlantic 10, and will travel to St. Joseph's on Wednesday.  The Hawks downed the Spiders, 70-60, at the Robins Center earlier this month.
