MOBILE, Ala. (AP) -- Mike Smith scored 18 points and Steven Moore had 17 to lead Arkansas-Little Rock to a 66-60 win over Florida Atlantic Sunday night in the Sun Belt Conference quarterfinal round.

The Trojans (20-10) sank four consecutive free throws over the final 7 seconds after struggling at the line most of the game. Their fifth straight win moved the West Division champions into the semifinals against either Western Kentucky or North Texas.

Brandon Patterson's layup gave Arkansas-Little Rock a 62-58 lead with 17 seconds left. Then Carderro Nwoji hit a pair of free throws for Florida Atlantic (15-18).

Moore and De'Andre Eggins both went 2-for-2 from the line after that for the Trojans, who made just 14-of-32 attempts in the game.

Moore made three 3-pointers and had five assists and three steals.

Paul Graham led Florida Atlantic with 15 points, mostly by making all 11 free throws. Xavier Perkins added 12 points, Nwoji had 10 and Carlos Monroe had nine points and 10 rebounds.

Florida Atlantic finished the season 4-14 in games away from home.
