Wofford defeats UNC-Greensboro 70-52 to open tourney defense

ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) Spencer Collins poured in 21 points – and all five starters scored at least eight – as top-seeded, defending champion Wofford made half its field goals to throttle No. 8 seed UNC-Greensboro 70-52 in the Southern Conference tournament quarterfinals on Saturday.

The Terriers (26-6) meet fourth-seeded Western Carolina in Sunday’s semifinals. Wofford is seeking a fourth SoCon tourney championship in six seasons.

Collins made 9 of 14 field goals and scored more than 20 points for the second time in Wofford’s last three games. Collins had a career-high 26 against Mercer on Feb. 26. He nailed a 3-pointer Saturday to help kick off an 18-4 run as the Terriers broke away early, en route to a 30-20 halftime lead.

Lee Skinner and Karl Cochran scored 12 points each, Justin Gordon 10 and Eric Garcia eight for Wofford.

Kayel Locke scored 17 with 10 rebounds to lead UNC-Greensboro (11-22) and Diante Baldwin added 13 points.
