GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) -- Trevis Simpson scored 26 points and Derrell Armstrong came off the bench for 21 as UNC Greensboro used a second-half surge to pull away from Winston-Salem State 81-65 Monday night.

Leading 55-54, the Spartans (1-1) went on a 19-0 run, holding the Division II Rams scoreless for 6:28 before Justin Glover ended the drought with a jumper.

UNC Greensboro, which led by seven at the break and kept that margin early in the second half, saw its lead disappear as the Division II Rams pulled ahead 48-45 with 13:46 remaining.

Armstrong scored five straight points to regain the Spartans lead, but Winston-Salem State stayed within a point before going cold with 9:20 to go.

Glover and Stephon Platt led the Rams (0-1) with 15 points apiece while Wykevin Bazemore, who had 11 points and 17 rebounds in an exhibition game against Duke, finished with eight points and 10 rebounds.
