WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) Matt Milon hit a 3-pointer and knocked down a pair of free throws in the final minute as William & Mary held off High Point to win its season opener, 79-69 Wednesday night, spoiling the debut of Panthers alum Tubby Smith as the team's coach.

Smith, who played at High Point from 1969-73 and is already a member of the High Point Athletics Hall of Fame and three-time National Coach of the Year, spent the last two seasons as the coach of Memphis.

Brandonn Kamga got to the basket and converted a 3-point play with 3:15 left go get High Point within two, 69-67, but Milon knocked down a 3 and Justin Pierce hit two free throws with 2:06 left to push the Tribe's lead to 74-69 while the defense denied High Point another basket.

Pierce finished with 23 points and 14 rebounds to lead William & Mary to its second straight win over High Point at home. Milon, who hit 4 of 7 from distance, finished with 19 points.

Jahaad Proctor and Kamga scored 25 and 24 points, respectively, for High Point.
