ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) Francis Alonso scored 31 points, including 10 in a row as No. 2 seed UNC Greensboro rallied late in the game to stave off an upset by seventh-seeded Samford in the quarterfinals of the Southern Conference Tournament on Saturday.

Isaiah Miller added 13 points for UNC Greensboro, and eight of the nine Spartans who suited up for the game scored.
