WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) Craig Ponder scored 26 points to lead UNC-Wilmington past Milligan 100-62 on Friday night in a season opener for both teams.

Will Buckner's layup midway through the first half put the NAIA Division II Buffaloes up 18-14. But the Seahawks used a 12-0 run to end any potential suspense.
