Rock Hill, SC -
Winthrop shot just 27.8% from the field, and lost to Gardner-Webb, 56-51 on Wednesday night. The Eagles fell to 2-1 in Big South play with the loss.
Keon Moore led Winthrop with 20 points, but only one other Eagle -- James Bourne with 10 points -- joined Moore in double-figures.
Gardner-Webb also had just two players score 10 points or more (Naji Hibbert with 11, and Tyrell Nelson with 10), but Donta Harper and Jerome Hill both chipped in with 9, and Onzie Branch tallied 7, to round out the balanced effort from the Runnin' Bulldogs.
Winthrop is back in action on Saturday, as they visit fellow Big South division leader Coastal Carolina. Both the Eagles and the Chanticleers are 2-1 in the league, tied atop the South division.
