WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) - Eric Buckner scored 17 points and Jihad Ali added 16 to lead Georgia State to a 68-53 victory over UNC Wilmington on Wednesday night in a Colonial Athletic Association game.

With the score tied 11-11 and 8:28 remaining in the first half, Ali made a layup and then a 3-pointer 31 seconds later to launch a 15-0 Georgia State run. The Panthers never led by fewer than nine points the rest of the way.

Donte Morales scored 14 points and Keith Rendleman had 12 points and 13 rebounds for the Seahawks (8-14, 4-8), who have dropped four in a row, including a 66-61 loss to Towson on Saturday that snapped the Tigers' 41-game losing streak.
