LARAMIE, Wyo. -- Ray Willis had 20 points and nine rebounds as North Carolina Central held off Southern 59-55 Thursday at the Global Sports Hoops Showcase.

Malcolm Miller led Southern (1-3) with 17 points. Javan Mitchell added 14 points and Derick Beltran had 10 points and nine rebounds.

NC Central missed all four of its 3-point attempts and shot just 32 percent overall, but converted 25 of 31 free throws.

The Eagles led 57-49 with 1:14 remaining before a jumper by Jameel Grace and two buckets by Beltran brought the Jaguars within 57-55 with 22 seconds left. Willis then hit two free throws for NC Central and came up with a steal to put the game out of reach.
