BRISTOL – It wasn’t easy, but the 25th-ranked King University men’s basketball team clinched at least a share of the Conference Carolinas regular season title on Wednesday night in the Student Center Complex. Jordan Floyd poured in a school-record 47 points, including the game-winner with 5.7 seconds remaining in overtime as King escaped with a 97-95 win over Erskine College.
