Rowsey, a second team All-Big South selection, set Big South Championship first round records for points and three-pointers made during his fourth 30-point game of the season. Eleven of Rowsey’s points came during a 13-2 run which spanned both halves and put Asheville on top for good.

UNC Asheville advances to face Coastal Carolina on Friday in the quarterfinals. The two teams split the regular season series.

*  Jerome Hill scored 17 points and grabbed 14 rebounds for his 16th double-double of the year to lead Gardner-Webb to a 72-64 win over Campbell Wednesday in the first round of the VisitMyrtleBeach.com Big South Championship at The HTC Center.

Tyrell Nelson and Harold McBride added 15 each for GWU, while Adonis Burbage chipped in 10 for the seventh-seeded Runnin’ Bulldogs (19-13), who will meet second seed High Point (22-8) in Friday’s 6:00 p.m. quarterfinal.  Big South all-freshman team choice Curtis Phillips led 10th-seeded Campbell (10-22) with 20 points and six rebounds.  Reco McCarter and Troy Harper had 13 each for the Camels, who were unable to recover from a 19-point deficit in the opening half.

* Shaquille Johnson scored 25 points and grabbed a career-high 11 rebounds to lead No. 9 Longwood to a 65-61 win over No. 8 Presbyterian Wednesday in the first round of the VisitMyrtleBeach.com Big South Championship at The HTC Center.
