UNC Asheville beats Winthrop 77-68 for Big South title

BUIES CREEK, N.C. (AP) UNC Asheville coach Nick McDevitt stood on the court facing the Bulldogs' screaming fans with his arms raised when sophomore Ahmad Thomas ran over, embraced him and lifted him off the ground.

As Thomas started to carry his coach around, teammate Sam Hughes interrupted by running over to celebrate the same way.

The next time these Bulldogs have a chance to do that, it will be in their first NCAA Tournament appearance since 2012.
