Ingram, Flemmings pace UNCW to 105-94 win in CAA semifinal
NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Denzel Ingram scored 27 points and Chris Flemmings 26 as top-seeded UNC Wilmington defeated William & Mary 105-94 on Sunday, advancing to Colonial Athletic Association Tournament championship game.
The defending CAA Tournament champion Seahawks (28-5) are on a six-game hot streak and showed why Sunday, banging down 33 of 56 shots (59 percent) with 11 3-pointers out of 21 tries (52 percent). Ingram was 6 of 9 from behind the arc and added eight assists. UNCW has scored 91 and 105 in this season’s tournament.
Flemmings was 6-of-10 shooting and 13 of 13 at the free-throw line, where UNCW converted 28 of 33 attempts. C.J. Bryce scored 16 points and Devontae Cacok 12.
Fourth-seeded William & Mary (17-4) is also a high-flyer as the Tribe and UNCW lead the Colonial in scoring, offensive efficiency and field-goal percentage. Omar Prewitt led with 24 points and David Cohn scored 18 with four 3-pointers as the Tribe also drained 11 treys and matched UNCW 33 of 59 from the floor. Daniel Dixon scored 10 points but was 1-of-7 shooting from 3, leaving he and Prewitt with a combined 3,186 points — two shy of becoming William & Mary’s program leaders.
