CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Diante Baldwin scored a career-high 25 points with five rebounds and eight assists as UNC Greensboro beat the Citadel 95-87 on Wednesday night in their Southern Conference opener.

UNC Greensboro led by 18 at the break and the Citadel closed it to six points, 54-40, early in the second half. But the Spartans took off again after that, extending their lead to 73-53 on a Baldwin layup with 10:07 to play and The Citadel never threatened after that.
