BOILING SPRINGS, N.C. (AP) - Tashan Newsome's jumper with 30.2 seconds left gave Gardner-Webb a one-point lead, and the Runnin' Bulldogs held on to beat Winthrop 62-60 on Saturday night.

With Gardner-Webb (4-6, 1-1 Big South Conference) leading 61-60, Reggie Middleton missed a jumper that would have given Winthrop the lead, and Tyler Strange made 1 of 2 free throws for the final margin.
