UNC WILMINGTON 70, EAST CAROLINA 68
GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) -- Cedrick Williams scored 17 points and
grabbed nine rebounds and UNC-Wilmington held off high-scoring
East Carolina 70-68 on Sunday.
Addison Spruill and Shane Reybold added 15 points each for
UNC-Wilmington (5-5) led most of the first half but Caleb
White's 3-pointer tied the score at 31 going in to the break.
Wilmington gave up the lead to the Pirates (45-43) at eight
minutes into the second half, but neither team could stay in
front during the second half until three layups by Freddie
Jackson and a dunk by Williams put the Seahawks up by five with
25 seconds left.
East Carolina (6-1) fought back, closing to within two points,
but Cedrick Williams blocked a potential game-tying layup by
Prince Williams at the buzzer in getting the win.
Paris Campbell led the Pirates with 15 points and Brandon Stith
grabbed 13 rebounds.
