DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -- Jeremy Ingram scored 20 of his career-high 32 points in the first half and North Carolina Central beat Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference-foe Bethune-Cookman 81-75 Monday night.

Ingram was 17-of-20 shooting free throws and added three 3-pointers. Ray Willis scored 19 points, including the team's final 11, as the Eagles (17-7, 10-0) won their 11th straight game - their longest streak since winning 16 straight in 1995-96.

Adrien Coleman tied a season-high with 31 points for Bethune-Cookman (9-16, 4-6) and added 10 rebounds - eight offensive - for his fourth double-double of the season.

North Carolina Central scored the game's first eight points and led 30-13 with 8:49 left, with Ingram accounting for 16 of those points.

The Eagles then went nearly 7 minutes without a field goal and trailed 42-41 early in the second half. North Carolina Central responded with a 7-0 run, though, and led the rest of the way.
