Jonathon Williams scored 11 points and Marcus Burton added 10 as Wagner managed a 38-36 victory over North Carolina Central Saturday.

North Carolina Central (3-4) rallied behind Jeremy Ingram, the only Eagle in double figures with 10 points. Ingram's 3-pointer tied it at 28-28 early in the second half, but Burton's trey promptly regained the lead for good for Wagner, 31-28.
