    ROCK HILL, S.C. -- Charles Corbin had 11 points and 10 rebounds and scored the go-ahead basket with 47 seconds left to lead Winthrop to a 61-56 victory over Liberty on Thursday night.

    Corbin's third free throw in 15 seconds gave Winthrop a 59-56 lead with 19 seconds to play and the Flames' final two possessions ended in a turnover and missed 3-point attempt.

    There were seven ties and seven lead changes.
