ROCK HILL, S.C. -- Joab Jerome scored 15 points and grabbed nine rebounds as Winthrop defeated UNC Asheville 70-61 Saturday in the Big South Conference season finale for both teams.

Andre Smith and Christian Farmer scored 14 points apiece, and James Bourne chipped in 13 for Winthrop (13-16, 6-10).

Ahead 33-29 at halftime, Winthrop opened the second half on a 13-4 run, capped by Reggie King's jumper to go up 46-33 with just under 12 minutes remaining.

Jeremy Atkinson's free throws with 2:22 left got UNC Asheville as close as eight, 65-57, but King answered with a layup and Andre Smith converted two free throws with 1:30 remaining to push the lead back to double figures, 69-57.

UNC Asheville shot just 31.8 (21 of 66) percent compared to Winthrop's 50 percent (25 of 50).

Atkinson scored 17 points for the Bulldogs (16-15, 10-6), who have lost five of their last six games.
