DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Jeremiah Ingram scored 18 points on 7-of-10 shooting and Kyle Benton had 17 points with 11 rebounds — both career highs — to help North Carolina Central beat Johnson & Wales 78-70 Wednesday night.

Rashaun Madison hit four 3-pointers and finished with 14 points, while Dante Holmes had 12 points, eight rebounds and a career-best six assists for N.C. Central (6-10).

Rickey Porter's layup pulled Johnson & Wales — a member of the United States Collegiate Athletic Association — within three with 11:47 left.

Benton made a layup and, after an offensive foul on the other end, Holmes was fouled on a 3-pointer and converted a 4-point play to put N.C. Central up 58-49 about 90 seconds later and the Wildcats trailed by at least five down the stretch.

Porter led Johnson & Wales with 18 points. Nick Crawford added 12 points, eight rebounds, 10 assists and two steals.
