Ben Stywall notched a double-double, scoring 19 points and

grabbing 14 rebounds to lead North Carolina-Greensboro in a 59-53

win over The Citadel on Saturday.

Mikko Koivisto added 18 points for the Spartans (6-21, 5-11

The teams traded leads for the balance of the game, but Austin

Dahn’s 3-pointer with 12:44 left pushed The Citadel’s advantage to

41-35. However, Koivisto matched Dahn’s 3 with one of his own,

sparking a 19-4 run by UNCG and the Spartans never trailed

again.

(20-for-50) to 38.5 percent (20-for-52), and outrebounded them

41-24.

second-chance points.

Dahn paced the Bulldogs (15-13, 9-7) with 17 points and Cameron
