The Matt Dickey and J.P. Primm show led the way for the North Carolina-Asheville basketball team Tuesday night. Primm and Dickey each scored 22 points apiece.

Dickey keyed a late rush which put the game into overtime and J.P. Primm sank five free throws and had a key steal in the closing seconds, leading the Bulldogs to an 81-77 win over Arkansas-Little Rock in overtime, the First Four opening game at the University of Dayton Arena.

UNC-Asheville was taken to the promised land by its best player, Dickey who scored 14 of the Bulldogs’ last 18 points in regulation, including a three-point goal with 10.5 seconds to go that tied the game.

It took Dickey a long time to finally heat up; he took only two shots in the first half. The Big South tournament’s MVP was determined to lead his team to victory.

Dayton, Ohio has been a good friend of the Bulldogs (20-13). They also opened in the southwest Ohio town in 2003, when they became the first Big South team to win an NCAA tournament game. They defeated Texas Southern 92-84 in a the play-in for the 65-team field.

Alex Garcia-Mendoza matched his career high with 21 points for Arkansas-Little Rock(19-17). The Trojans played without Solomon Bozeman, the Sun Belt’s player of the year who fouled out with 55 seconds to go in regulation. He finished the game with 18 points.

The Bulldogs will board an airplane and head to Washington, D.C., where the next opponent is Pittsburgh, the Southeast’s #1 seed on Thursday.
