ROCK HILL, S.C. (AP) -- Taj McCullough scored 12 points to lead Winthrop to a 61-42 win over North Carolina-Asheville on Monday night.
The Eagles (14-4, 4-0 Big South Conference) have won all four of their Big South games by at least 19 points.
The Bulldogs (5-13, 1-3) trailed by 18 once in the first half, but slowly cut the deficit to five points early in the second half on Garrett Moles' jumper.
But The Eagles then clamped down defense and pulled away, holding Asheville to just four field goals in the second half.
Winthrop's woes at the foul line continued, as the Eagles made just eight of their 21 free throws.
Reid August led Asheville with eight points, while Donovan Jones added seven for the Bulldogs, who shot 31.8 percent (14-of-44) from the field.
