LYNCHBURG, Va. (AP) Andre Smith hit a 3-pointer to spark an 11-4 run deep in the second half as Winthrop pulled away from a close game to defeat Liberty 73-62 on Tuesday night.

Joab Jerome added a free throw and a jumper, Keon Johnson a 3-pointer and Tevin Prescott a dunk during the run as the Eagles (11-10, 5-4 Big South) boosted a two-point lead to seven, 63-54, in about 4 minutes.
