Winthrop earns top Big South seed, routs Presbyterian 93-56

CLINTON, S.C. (AP) Roderick Perkins hit six 3-pointers to score 18 points and Winthrop claimed a share of the Big South Conference regular season championship and the No. 1 seed into the conference tournament with a 93-56 rout of Presbyterian on Saturday.

The Eagles finished tired with UNC Asheville, both with 15-3 conference records, but the tiebreaking formula favored Winthrop and it will play host to the conference tournament quarterfinals, semifinals and finals.

First round games are Tuesday, with the final three rounds beginning Thursday.
