FARMVILLE, Va. -- B.K. Ashe had his first double-double of the season with 21 points and 13 rebounds and Longwood beat Gardner-Webb 79-73 on Saturday to snap a 28-game losing streak against Division I opponents.

Isaiah Walton sealed it at the line on the other end.
Walton added 18 points for Longwood (4-12, 1-2 Big South). Glover and Spencer Franklin each scored 11.
