    DALLAS (AP) -- Mezie Uzochukwu hit two free throws with a second left Tuesday night as South Carolina Upstate rallied to defeat SMU 58-56.

    SMU led 52-38 with 8:36 left before the Spartans used an 18-0 run over a six-minute stretch to take a 56-52 lead. SMU's Bamba Fall tied the game at 56-56 on a layup with 36 seconds left. Uzochukwu went to the line to shoot the winning free throws after he was fouled by Jon Killen.

    Luke Payne led South Carolina-Upstate (2-8) with 19 points, including 13 in the second half. Bobby Davis scored 10.

    Fall led SMU (4-5) with 15 points. Derrick Roberts added 11.

    SMU led 30-26 at the half.
