CINCINNATI (AP) -- Morris Finley scored 28 points to lead
Alabama-Birmingham to a 77-66 win over Charlotte in the Conference
USA tournament quarterfinals Thursday.
UAB's opponent in the semifinals Friday will be top-seeded
DePaul, which advanced by beating Texas Christian 89-65.
Finley opened the second half with two consecutive 3-pointers
that wiped out a 37-35 halftime deficit and sparked a 16-2 run that
gave UAB a 51-39 lead with 13:56 remaining. Charlotte could get no
closer than six points after that.
