WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) - Denzel Ingram scored 20 points and Chris Flemmings 18 as UNC-Wilmington defeated Hofstra 84-76 on Saturday to remain unbeaten in Colonial Athletic Conference play.

UNC-Wilmington (17-2, 6-0) led by two at halftime, but after some early scrapping with Hofstra, Ingram stepped up with clutch plays. He hit a 3-pointer that gave the Seahawks a 59-54 lead with 11:36 left to play, followed with a steal, then assisted on an Ambrose Mosley 3-pointer and added a pair of free throws as the lead grew to 67-57 with 7:08 to play.

Hofstra (9-10, 1-5) cut the lead to 75-72 after Eli Pemberton hit a trey and Justin Wright-Foreman a jumper, but the Pride came no closer in the final 1:13.

Jordon Talley and C.J. Bryce went 6 for 6 at the foul line in the last 27 seconds.

Deron Powers led Hofstra with 20 points and eight assists, and Rokas Gustys finished with 15 points and 16 boards.
