Green's heroics lift Old Dominion by UAB 61-59 in CUSA semi
FRISCO, Texas (AP) Xavier Green had 21 points, including a 3-point play with four seconds left and top-seeded Old Dominion rallied to edge fifth-seeded UAB 61-59 in the semifinals of the Conference USA tournament on Friday.
Two free throws by Ahmad Carter with 15 seconds to play pulled the Monarchs within 59-58. Then the Blazers' Zack Bryant missed the front end of a one-and-one at 13 seconds. Carter then found Green cutting through the key and Green put the shot up between two defenders, banking the ball off the glass for the lead.
UAB had a chance but threw the ball away on the final possession.
Bryant had 23 points for the Blazers (20-14). Jalen Perry added 14 points. Lewis Sullivan had 10 points.
