Furman pulled to within 27-18 on Colin Reddick's layup with 6:44 left in the first half, but UNC Greensboro closed the half with a 21-8 run for a 48-26 advantage at the break. Simpson had eight points during the spurt.
The Spartans shot 60 percent from the field (36 of 60) to the Paladins' 35.6 percent (21 of 59) and won the rebound battle 42-29.
Maryland point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.
Louisville's Chinanu Onuaku, who recently underwent a medical procedure to correct a heart rhythm issue detected during the combine, will keep his name in the NBA draft pool.
Andrew White III will return to the Nebraska men's basketball team next season after removing his name from the NBA draft.
