DURHAM, N.C. (AP)—Nick Chasten had a double-double with 16 points and 15 rebounds to lead North Carolina Central to a 62-56 win over Washington Adventist on Wednesday night.
The Eagles led 29-28 less than a minute into the second half, but went on a 13-3 run to take their largest lead of the game at 42-31 on a layup by Chasten with 13:51 remaining. Washington Adventist trimmed the lead to 49-48 with 5:30 to go, but a 3-pointer by Landon Clement pushed the lead to 52-48 29 seconds later. The Shock would get no closer than two points the rest of the way.

Jamie Newton scored 25 points on 10 of 13 shooting from the field, including 4 of 6 from 3-point range, to lead the Shock (0-7).
