HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) - Charles Jenkins scored 22 points, including seven consecutive points late in the game, as Hofstra rallied for a 66-57 win over North Carolina-Wilmington on Wednesday night.
Mike Moore added 18 points and David Imes had 14 points and 10 rebounds for the Pride (12-6, 6-1 Colonial Athletic Association), who have won six straight games against the Seahawks (9-9, 3-4).
Jenkins' outburst was part of a 14-2 run to erase a five-point deficit.
He broke a 52-52 tie with a 3-pointer with 4:32 left. Jenkins then hit a jumper, rebounded a UNC Wilmington miss and added two free throws for a 59-52 lead with 3:14 to play.
Chad Tomko's jumper cut the deficit to 59-54, but Moore converted a three-point play with 2:28 remaining and the Pride led by at least seven the rest of the way.
Jenkins also had six assists.
Tomko had 18 points and Keith Rendleman added 17 for the Seahawks.
