GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - Mike Williams and Richie Gordon each hit a pair of free throws in the final two seconds as Western Carolina defeated North Carolina Greensboro 70-66 Monday night.
Harouna Mutombo led the Catamounts (16-13, 11-5 Southern Conference) in scoring and rebounding with 20 points and eight boards.

Trey Sumler added 16 points for Western Carolina, Williams had 11 and Brandon Boggs contributed 10. That helped the Catamounts offset a 23-point performance by Brandon Evans, who led UNC Greensboro. The Spartans also got 12 points from Trevis Simpson and 10 from Aloysius Henry.
