    WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) -- Adam Payton scored 13 points and Alex Smith added 12 to lead William & Mary to a 61-53 win over Richmond on Sunday.

    A 3-pointer by Kyle Carrabine put the Tribe in the lead for good with 12:01 left in the first half. The Spiders trailed by 14 at the half, and got no closer than seven points the rest of the way.

    Laimis Kisielius added 11 for William & Mary (7-4).

    William & Mary outshot Richmond 47.6 percent to 36.8, and outrebounded the Spiders 40-26.

    This is the fourth straight win for the Tribe, which is off to its best start since 1997-98. The Spiders have now lost eight of their past nine games.
