    TULSA, Okla. -- Jerome Jordan hit a four-footer at the buzzer to lift Tulsa to a 75-74 victory over Alabama-Birmingham Wednesday night.

    UAB (13-8, 3-3 Summit League) led 74-73 with 14 seconds left after Robert Vaden made one of two free throws.

    Ray Reese inbounded to Jordan just outside the paint, where he spun around UAB's Howard Crawford and put up the shot, which bounced on the rim before falling through.

    Jordan finished with 25 points, six rebounds, three assists and four blocks for Tulsa. Justin Hurtt added 11 points.

    Paul Delaney scored 21 points to lead UAB and Vaden and Crawford each scored 14.

    UAB led 40-36 at halftime and expanded the advantage to 49-38 early in the second half.

    Tulsa clawed its way back into the game, and a hook by Jordan knotted the score at 71 with 1:26 to play.
