    GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) -- Tony Carter scored 18 points and Robby Bostain added 17 as Furman beat UNC Greensboro 82-65 on Monday night.

    Moussa Diagne added 16 points and a game-high eight rebounds for the Paladins (9-6 2-1 Southern Conference), who led by as many as 27 points in the second half when Bostain's driving layup with 14 minutes remaining gave Furman a 54-27 lead.

    The Spartans (9-5, 2-1) slowly chipped away at the lead, trailing 65-51 with five minutes to go.

    But Nick Sanders tipped in a rebound and Carter hit two free throws to build the Paladins lead back to 18.

    Furman made 10 of 12 free throws in the final 2:30 to seal the win.

    Ray Bristow led UNC Greensboro with 18 points, while Ronnie Burrell added 15 points and six rebounds.
