WILMINGTON, N.C. -- Matt Fish had 16 points and 11 rebounds and Reggie Veney also scored 16 to lead North Carolina-Wilmington to an 87-76 victory over Navy in a Colonial Athletic Association game last night.
The game marked the last meeting between the two schools because Navy is leaving the CAA after this season.
UNC-Wilmington (9-11, 4-4) scored its last 18 points on free throws. For the game, the Seahawks made 27 of 34 free throws (79 percent).
The Midshipmen (6-14, 2-6) held a 34-28 halftime lead, and led until Veney made a three-pointer with 17:29 left to give the Seahawks a 38-37 lead. The lead changed hands three times after that before the Seahawks took the lead for good, 56-55, on Veney's layup with 10 minutes, 40 seconds remaining in the game.
