    LAS VEGAS -- Lawrence Borha made a 3-pointer from the corner with 0.8 seconds left, and second-seeded Utah survived a late collapse to beat TCU 61-58 Thursday night in the Mountain West Conference quarterfinals.

    Shaun Green scored 14 points, and conference player of the year Luke Nevill scored all 10 of his points in the second half for the Utes (22-9), who solidified their NCAA tournament credentials despite nearly slipping against the struggling Horned Frogs, who lost for the 11th time in 12 games.

    Zvonko Buljan scored 20 points and Ronnie Moss had 16 for TCU (14-17), which trailed until Moss tied it on a 3-pointer with 1:38 left. Buljan then hit a jumper to put the Horned Frogs up 58-56, but Nevill tied it with two free throws with 44 seconds left, setting up Borha's winner.
