WILMINGTON, N.C. -- Keith Rendleman scored 23 points and pulled down 15 rebounds and Freddie Jackson made a go-ahead layup with 1:02 left to play as UNC Wilmington defeated Hampton 61-60 Sunday in the final game of the Nations of Coaches Classic.
Jackson finished with 12 and Tanner Milson added 10 points for the Seahawks (3-3), who won despite shooting 4 of 22 from 3-point range.
Hampton (0-4) led for all but 1 minute of the second half before Shane Reybold's layup cut what was a three-point deficit to one, 60-59, with 1:37 left to play.
The Pirates missed a jumper on the other end and Rendleman grabbed one of his 10 second-half rebounds to set up Jackson's go-ahead layup.
The Seahawks held Hampton without a shot attempt over the final minute to seal the win.
SMU has signed a second player from Australia, 6-foot-11 forward Harry Froling, to a national letter of intent. The Mustangs previously signed guard Tom Wilson from Australia.
There's nothing to suggest the Jayhawks won't end up atop the Big 12 for a 13th season in a row. But what about a return to the Final Four?
Colorado State graduate transfer John Gillon has chosen Syracuse, giving the Orange a potential starter at point guard entering the 2016-17 season.
