Winthrop holds off Liberty 65-62

Jan 10, 2010 - 12:22 AM ROCK HILL, S.C.(AP) -- Mantoris Robinson scored 16 points, including sinking three free throws in the last 8 seconds, as Winthrop held off Liberty 65-62 on Saturday.

Kyle Ohman converted a three-point play to put Liberty up 60-59 with 39 seconds remaining in a back-and-forth second half. But Winthrop's Andre Jones knocked down a 3-pointer 12 seconds later, and Robinson went 3-for-4 from the charity stripe in the final seconds.

Robinson was the lone double-figure scorer for the Eagles (7-9, 3-3 Big South Conference), who shot just 41.8 percent from the floor (23-for-55).

The Eagles scored 21 points off of 20 Liberty turnovers and outrebounded the Flames 32-29. Winthrop outscored Liberty 17-8 on second-chance points.

Ohman paced the Flames (8-9, 3-2) with 20 points.

Winthrop has won two straight games after dropping five in a row.
