SPARTANBURG, S.C. – Wofford shot a season-best 58 percent from the floor for the game and had five players score in double figures to beat UNC Greensboro, 77-59, in Southern Conference men’s basketball action Saturday night at Benjamin Johnson Arena.

UNCG (5-18, 4-8 SoCon) was led by senior Ben Stywall with a game-high 18 points and eight rebounds. Freshman Kyle Randall added 10 points, going a perfect 8-for-8 at the free throw line, and Kendall Toney chipped in with nine points. It was Stywall’s seventh straight game with 10 or more points and the 18th in 23 games this season.

Kevin Giltner led the way for Wofford (17-8, 9-3 SoCon) with 14 points. Noah Dahlman added 10 points to score in double-digits for the 38th consecutive game for the Terriers. Wofford shot 30-for-52 from the field on the night and also got 13 points from Junior Salters and 10 points each from Tim Johnson and Jamar Diggs.

Wofford led wire-to-wire in earning its 10th win in the last 11 games. The Terriers made six of their first nine from the floor in jumping out to a 14-4 lead in the game’s first seven minutes. The Spartans got back to within seven midway through the first half on a Stywall bucket that made it 18-11, but got no closer on the night.
