Wall, Beal help Wizards top Hornets 109-106 with big 3rd

WASHINGTON (AP) - John Wall and Bradley Beal combined for 19 of their 45 points in the third quarter, Washington's highest-scoring period of the season, and the Wizards came back to beat the Charlotte Hornets 109-106, handing the Southeast Division leaders their third consecutive loss.

Wall, wearing bright orange neon shoes, outplayed Hornets star Kemba Walker, finishing with more points (25-17) and assists (10-9), along with seven steals to become Washington's franchise leader in that category.

Beal, 0 for 6 in the first half, took over for part of the third, scoring 11 points, mostly via a trio of 3s, and finished with 20 points and a career-high nine assists.


UNC Wilmington beats Campbell for sixth straight win

BUIES CREEK, N.C. (AP) - C.J. Bryce scored 26 points and UNC Wilmington pushed its record to 9-1 for the first time in school history with a 96-75 win over Campbell on Wednesday night.

The Seahawks have won six straight since their lone loss to Middle Tennessee on Nov. 25.

Bryce finished 8 of 14 from the field and hit 8 of his 11 free throws. Devonte Cacok added 18 points and 10 rebounds for UNC Wilmington, which shot 55.2 percent from the field and limited itself to just seven turnovers.

Shane Whitfield scored 25 points, 15 from the foul line, to lead Campbell (5-5). Chris Clemons added 18 points for the Camels.

UNC Wilmington led by four (52-48) early in the second, but quickly scored seven of the next eight for a 10-point lead. A Denzel Ingram 3-point play pushed it to 69-51 and the Seahawks cruised from there.


Smith has 15, UNC Greensboro shoots 60 percent, wins 96-61

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - Marvin Smith scored 15 points and UNC Greensboro rolled to a 96-61 win over Division-II Southern Wesleyan on Wednesday.

James Dickey came off the bench to score 12 points and grab seven rebounds for the Spartans (8-3), who have won seven of their last eight games heading into Southern Conference play.

The Spartans shot 59 percent (37 of 62), hitting 13 of 27 3-pointers. They had 28 assists, with Diante Baldwin getting seven, RJ White six and reserve Demetrius Troy getting five to go with five rebounds and 10 points.

UNCG took control early, making half of its 20 3-pointers in the first half, shooting 61 percent and racing to a 56-34 lead. Barely five minutes into the second half the lad had ballooned to 45.

Darius Sharpe had 23 points, hitting five 3-pointers, for Southern Wesleyan, which counted the game as an exhibition.


Louisville AD: Ex-Wake analyst shared plays with assistant

Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich says a former Wake Forest assistant coach-turned-broadcaster did share "a few plays" with a Cardinals assistant before the teams played last month.

Jurich said in a statement Wednesday that Louisville offensive coordinator Lonnie Galloway received a call from Demon Deacons radio analyst and former assistant Tommy Elrod before the game on Nov. 12. Galloway and Elrod were assistants to Jim Grobe at Wake Forest from 2011-12.

Jurich says Elrod passed along the plays that were then shared with the defensive staff, but "none of the special plays were run during the course of the game."

Wake Forest conducted a nearly monthlong internal investigation into potential leaks after documents related to the team's game plan were found at Louisville's stadium. Wake Forest fired Elrod on Tuesday.
