WILMINGTON, NC (UNCW) - - UNCW continued its domination in exhibition games with its 26th consecutive preseason victory following an easy 92-51 decision over NCAA Division III Methodist Sunday at Trask Coliseum.

The Seahawks completed an easy sweep of their two exhibition tune-ups following a 101- 51 shellacking of Belmont Abbey last week. Coach Buzz Peterson's club opens the regular season Friday with a first-ever visit to Carver-Hawkeye Arena in Iowa City to face Fran McCaffery's Iowa Hawkeyes.

In Sunday's matinee, the Seahawks took advantage of a seven-minute drought by the Monarchs to build an early margin before pouring it on to improve to 43-5 all-time in preseason games.

Tanner Milson led the Seahawk with 13 points off the bench and fueled by a 3-for-5 performance from 3-point range. Joining Milson in double figures was Addison Spruill with 12 points. Cedric Williams and Craig Ponder added 10 points apiece.

Keemon Ingram paced the Monarchs with 13 points while Austin Pack and Chris Vinson chipped in 11 point each.

The Seahawks shot a torrid 70.8 percent in the first half and jumped out to a 43-23 lead at intermission. The Monarchs managed just 29 percent from the floor in falling behind early.

Ingram scored eight of Methodist's first 10 points to spark the Monarchs to a 10-8 edge with 15:36 left in the first period before the visitors went cold. While the Monarchs struggled offensively, the Seahawks scored 16 unanswered points to open up a 24-10 cushion.

Redshirt sophomore Luke Hager made a sweeping hook shot in the paint at 8:45 to extend UNCW's early margin to 24-10. The lead swelled to as many as 24 points in the first half when Addison Spruill's pair of free throws pushed the advantage to 41-17 with just over a minute left in the opening period.

UNCW registered its largest lead in the game at 47 points after Zach Allen knocked down a 3-pointer for UNCW with 5:34 remaining in the game.

The matchup with the nationally-ranked Hawkeyes will be the first of a two-game swing to the Midwest. UNCW also visits Iowa State on Sunday for a 1 p.m. pairing with the Cyclones in Ames.

WILMINGTON, NC (UNCW) --- Senior Christi Laite and junior Morgan Kline recorded 13 kills apiece to lead UNCW to a 3-0 (25-17, 25-22, 25-22) victory over Delaware in Colonial Athletic Association volleyball action Sunday at Hanover Hall.

The Seahawks improved to 16-8 overall and evened their league mark at 5-5 as they picked up their eighth victory in nine tries at home this season. The Blue Hens, meanwhile, suffered their fifth straight setback to slip to 11-14 and 3-8.

Laite, Kline and freshman Nicole Lott, who joined in the duo in double figures with 12 spikes, powered a potent Seahawks offense that finished with a .301 hitting percentage (51-17-113).

Sophomore Victoria Phillips tallied 23 assists and freshman Alyssa Desjardins added 20. Senior Haley Collins tallied a match-high 15 digs while Kline added 13 for her fourth double-double of the season.

Freshman Kali Funk handed out a match-high 31 assists while sophomore Ariel Shonk posted a team-best 12 digs.

UNCW cruised to a 25-17 victory in the first set, using a 14-8 spurt midway through the frame to build a 21-12 cushion on its way to the eight-point victory.

With the score tied at 18-all late in the second set, a kill by Kline ignited the Seahawks to score seven of the final 11 points of the frame and record a 25-22 victory.

In a tight third set that featured a total of nine ties and six lead changes, UNCW trailed 17-15 late in the frame before a kill by Peacock sparked the Seahawks to score five of the next six points to take a 21-18 lead. The Blue Hens would attempt to tie the match, pulling within one on three occasions, but UNCW was able to hold off the Delaware charge and post a 25-22 and earn the sweep.

UNCW returns to action Nov. 8 as it hosts Northeastern in a 7 p.m. contest. Delaware is back on the court Nov. 10 when it entertains Towson in a 1 p.m. match.

FORT WORTH, TX (AP) - Jimmie Johnson led 255 of 334 laps for a dominating victory Sunday that put the five-time champion back in the Chase for the Sprint Cup lead with two races left in the season.

Matt Kenseth and Johnson arrived at Texas Motor Speedway tied in points, though Kenseth was the leader based on his seven wins.

Johnson got his sixth victory this season, becoming only the second three-time Cup winner at Texas. The No. 48 Hendrick team takes a seven-point lead to Phoenix next week.

Kenseth was running second behind Johnson for much of the first half of the race before getting penalized for speeding. That dropped him to 16th place and more than 28 seconds back, though he recovered to finish fourth.

Johnson finished more than 4 seconds ahead of teammate Dale Earnhardt Jr., who had his fifth runner-up finish this season.
