ASHEVILLE, N.C. -- Keith Hornsby scored 21 points and Jeremy Atkinson added 20 to lift UNC Asheville over Winthrop 69-56 Wednesday night for its sixth straight win.

Jon Nwannunu came off the bench to score 11 points for Asheville, winners of seven consecutive home games.

The Bulldogs continued their run in the second half, outscoring the Eagles 23-13 over the first 10 minutes to pull away. Winthrop got no closer than six the rest of the way and Asheville took its largest lead, 67-53, on a Hornsby 3-pointer.
