    ROCK HILL, S.C. (AP) -- Craig Bradshaw had 20 points and 10 rebounds to lead Winthrop to an 80-76 win over Liberty on Tuesday night.

    The Eagles (20-4, 10-0 Big South Conference) trailed by as many as 13 points in the first half before rallying to win their 17th straight home game.

    The Flames (11-13, 5-5) led 52-45 with 11:30 left in the game when Bradshaw and Chris Gaynor hit 3-pointers and Mantoris Robinson added a pair of free throws to give Winthrop its first lead since early in the first half.

    The teams traded the lead once more before Phillip Williams' dunk with 7:26 remaining gave the Eagles the lead for good at 57-56.

    Winthrop hit five of its last six free throws to secure the victory, which marked coach Gregg Marshall's 100th Big South win.

    Larry Blair scored 23 points and Anthony Smith added 21 points for Liberty.

    Gaynor and Michael Jenkins each added 19 points for the Eagles.
