Winthrop beats Coastal Carolina 75-65


ROCK HILL, S.C. (AP) Andre Smith scored 16 and Larry Brown added 12 points and 11 rebounds as Winthrop pulled away from Coastal Carolina for a 75-65 win Wednesday night.

Coastal Carolina made 13 of 20 field goals (65 percent) in the first half while taking a 36-31 lead into the break. Its collective hot hand, however, was left in the locker room.

Winthrop (15-11, 8-5 Big South) limited the Chanticleers to just 6-of-19 shooting, including 1-of-8 from 3-point range, in the second half to take control of the game.

Brown and Smith each scored 10 points after the intermission.
