CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Willie Clayton turned in 16 points and 16 rebounds to guide Charlotte to a 71-63 overtime victory over UNC Asheville in a nonconference game Wednesday night.

Charlotte (12-2) scored the first eight points of overtime, turned that into a 13-2 run and cruised to victory from there.

Ingram's jumper put Charlotte ahead 56-51 with 2:26 left in regulation, but Jeremy Atkinson hit a 3-pointer and a layup to tie the game and the teams went to overtime knotted 56-all.

UNC Asheville (6-8) was led by double-doubles from Atkinson and Keith Hornsby - Atkinson had 16 points and 13 rebounds and Hornsby had 16 points and 10 boards.

Ingram scored 16 points and DeMario Mayfield 15 for the 49ers.

The loss snapped a three-game winning streak for UNC Asheville.
