HIGH POINT, N.C. -- Adam Weary's jump shot from inside the key with 8 seconds left lifted High Point to a 65-64 victory over Winthrop on Saturday night.

With the game tied at 63, the Eagles' Keon Johnson was fouled. He made 1 of 2 free throws with 25 seconds left. After Weary's basket, which gave High Point its first lead, Johnson missed a contested shot on a drive to the basket.

John Brown led the Panthers with 26 points with Weary finishing with 15. High Point shot 53.2 percent.

High Point (9-12, 5-3) collected its fifth win in its last six games and remained tied atop the Big South's North Division with VMI and Campbell. Winthrop (10-10, 4-4), in losing its second straight game, fell two games off the pace in the South Division.

Johnson scored 16 points and Joab Jerome and Keon Moore added 15 each for Winthrop. Tevin Prescott added 12.
