LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) -- Kevin Kanaskie made a driving jumper with 33 seconds left as Middle Tennessee beat top-seeded South Alabama 63-to-60 in overtime Sunday in the quarterfinals of the Sun Belt Conference Tournament.
The ninth-seeded Blue Raiders (15-16) hit six of eight free throws in the final 28 seconds of regulation.
Middle Tennessee led virtually the entire second half. But Ernest Little's dunk with 1:16 left tied the game at 53 and neither team could convert on two late possessions.
The loss was the fourth straight for South Alabama after a 13-game win streak helped the Jaguars claim the Sun Belt's regular-season title.
