    ROCK HILL, S.C. -- Keon Johnnson's 3-pointer at 14:28 in the second period turned the game and Winthrop beat Roanoake 93-74 on Saturday in their season opener.

    Johnson led the Eagles with 19 points, including four 3-pointers. Roanoake was leading 40-37 at the half and Johnson's big second-period trey gave Winthrop a decisive four point lead that they never relinquished and later extended by as many as 20 points.

    Christian Farmer had 17 points for the Eagles, including two 3-pointers and five rebounds, Joab Jerome had 13 and Josh Davenport added 12. Winthrop shined on defense, forcing 21 turnovers and blocking seven shots.

    Andrew Daniels led the Maroons with 15 points, including three 3-pointers. Cameron Smith and Daniel Eacho each had 11 points and John Fitchett added 10. Eacho led his team with nine rebounds.

    Saturday was the first time the two teams have faced each other.
