BOSTON (AP) - Jeremy Atkinson scored 21 points, Jon Nwannunu had 16 points and UNC Asheville held off a late rally by Northeastern in a 79-73 win on Tuesday.

Keith Hornsby finished with 15 points and Will Weeks added 14 for the Bulldogs (4-7), who have won three of their last four games. Atkinson also had a game-high nine rebounds.

UNC Asheville took a 71-57 lead with 3:52 left in the game on Hornsby's free throw. But the Huskies went on a 9-0 run, capped by Joel Smith's 3-pointer with 1:16 remaining, to trim the deficit to five points.
