CATONSVILLE, Md. (AP) -- Jerrell Dinkins scored a career-high 22 points and Maryland-Baltimore County defeated William & Mary 64-40 on Saturday.

John Zito added 20 points for the Retrievers (4-4), who have won two straight and three of four. Brian Hodges had 12 points.

William & Mary (4-4), playing for the first time in 13 days, dropped its third straight game. Reserve Nathan Mann led the Tribe with 19 points and hit 5 of 8 shots from 3-point range.

Calvin Barker had 11 points and Corey Cofield scored 10 for the Tribe.

With the score tied at 38 midway through the second half, Zito scored on consecutive layups, sparking a 9-0 burst that put UMBC ahead 47-38 with 12:27 remaining. Dinkins added a leaning jumper, and Mike Housman capped the run with a three-point play.

The Tribe cut the lead to 56-53 on Cofield's basket with 3:03 to go, but Brian Hutt and Baker each missed the front ends of one-and-one opportunities, and William & Mary didn't score again until Adam Payton hit two free throws with 36.5 seconds left.

Zito scored 11 first-half points, and his left-wing 3-pointer with 4.2 seconds left gave UMBC a 33-30 halftime lead.

The Retrievers used a 7-0 run midway through the half to erase a 13-11 William & Mary lead. Dinkins had four points during the surge.

Down 19-13, the Tribe turned to long-range shooting. Mann sandwiched two 3-pointers around a trey from Calvin Baker for a 9-0 run that produced a 28-25 lead with 2:05 remaining.
