WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) - Cedrick Williams turned in a double-double, and UNC Wilmington won 67-59 over UNC Asheville in a nonconference affair that featured eight lead changes.

The Seahawks, playing in their season opener, trailed 51-49 with just over four minutes left when Tanner Milson drained a 3-pointer and Keith Rendleman tossed down a dunk to put UNC Wilmington into the lead.

UNC Asheville (1-1) clawed back as close as 56-55, but two Rendleman free throws jumpstarted a 7-0 run to help the Seahawks ensure victory.

Williams finished with a team-best 15 points and a game-high 13 rebounds.

The second half featured six lead changes, with neither team leading by more than five until UNC Wilmington's final advantage.
