    TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- Brett McDade scored 16 points, including all eight of his free throws in the final 2:21, as Tulsa staved off a comeback bid by Southern for a 60-48 victory on Monday.

    The Golden Hurricane (4-5) twice led by 19 points in the first half and had a 40-22 second-half lead when Southern scored three baskets in 90 seconds to get back in the game.

    The Jaguars, who forced 13 turnovers in each half, pulled within 48-42 on a layup by Peter Cipriano with 4:48 remaining.

    A 10-foot jumper by Darold Crow stopped the run, then McDade made two free throws to give Tulsa a 52-43 advantage with 4:01 left.

    Southern whittled that down to 52-47, and had a chance at getting closer when Chris Alexander stole an inbounds pass and was fouled with 2:27 left. But Alexander missed both free throws.

    McDade was fouled and made both free throws to widen Tulsa's advantage to 56-48.

    Ray Reese added 13 points for Tulsa before fouling out, while Crow had 10 points.

    Alexander scored 11 points, grabbed eight rebounds and had four steals for Southern (1-8). Southern shot just 37 percent from the field, 50 percent on free throws and had 25 turnovers.

    Tulsa built a 29-10 lead in the first half but had turnovers on seven of its final nine possessions and saw the lead cut to 31-18 at the break, as Javaris Bradford and Alexander nailed 3-pointers in the final 1:09 of the half.
