N.C.-Wilmington 65, Toledo 61

WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) -- T.J. Carter scored 21 points and North Carolina-Wilmington held on to beat Toledo 65-61 on Wednesday night.

Daniel Fountain added 15 points for the Seahawks (4-2), who never trailed and led by 15 in the second half before the Rockets rallied.

Toledo made it a one-point game when Jerrah Young's dunk with 2:12 left made it 60-59. But Carter -- who was perfect on 10 attempts from the foul line -- hit two free throws 30 seconds later.

Todd Hendley and Fountain then added free throws in the closing moments to extend UNC Wilmington's lead to 64-59.

Tyrone Kent had 18 points to lead Toledo (1-5), which has lost five straight since a season-opening win against Missouri State. Young and Jonathan Amos each had 16 points for the Rockets, who allowed UNC Wilmington to shoot 52.4 percent.

The Seahawks were 17-of-20 from the free-throw line.
