JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Andre Jones scored 26 points and Winthrop played tough defense down the stretch to pull away from Jacksonville 59-45 on Thursday night.

Jacksonville (2-7) jumped out to a 4-0 advantage, but Jones hit a jumper and knocked down a 3-pointer to give Winthrop the lead for good. The Dolphins kept it close, tying the score 10-10 with 12:13 left in the first half, but Winthrop finished the period on a 17-2 run to take a 27-12 lead with 1:40 remaining.

Winthrop (3-6) shot 40 percent from the field (18 of 45) and knocked down 76 percent of their free throws (19 of 25).
