    RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- Jermaine Bucknor scored 23 points and Richmond never trailed Saturday night in a 63-56 victory against Charlotte.

    The Spiders (11-8, 4-2 Atlantic 10) took their biggest lead at 59-49 with 1:11 remaining after a free throw by Kevin Steenberge. They held on despite missing 4 of 6 free throws the rest of the way, and hitting just 11 of 20 in the second half.

    Charlotte (11-8, 4-3) got no closer than five in the final minute. The 49ers were led by De'Angelo Alexander with 20 points. Curtis Withers and Leemire Goldwire each added 12.

    The Spiders used a 14-6 run midway through the first half to take a 26-18 lead, and enjoyed a 32-26 edge at the half.

    Steenberge added 12 points, five assists, three blocks and three steals. Omar Sylla scored 10.

    Charlotte coach Bobby Lutz was ejected with 4:25 left after getting his second technical foul in a span of 15 seconds.
