UNCW tops conference leader Hofstra 87-79, exits CAA cellar

WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) Devontae Cacok scored 18 points and grabbed 16 rebounds and UNC Wilmington, which started the day in last place in the Colonial Athletic Association, knocked off conference leader Hofstra 87-79 on Saturday night.

Ty Gadsden added 17 points, making all nine of his free throws, including four in the final minute. Kai Toews scored 10 points and had 11 assists with Jeantal Cylla adding 13 points and Jaylen Sims 12 for the Seahawks (9-10, 5-10), who snapped a six-game losing streak and exited the CAA cellar.

Justin Wright-Foreman scored 30 points, Eli Pemberton 22 and Desure Buie 15 for the Pride (12-2, 22-5), who had a three-game win streak end. The Pride had a 16-game win streak earlier this season which included a 15-point win over UNCW on Jan. 17.

Pemberton hit a 3-pointer to get the Pride within three with 32 seconds left, but Gadsden made two free throws and Sims one before Cocok punctuated the win with a transition dunk.

The Seahawks made 24 of 28 free throws, countering the Pride's 25-of-30 showing. UNCW's bench outscored Hofstra's 51-0.
