    TULSA, Okla. -- Ben Uzoh scored 20 points, including two free throws with 9.1 seconds left, and Tulsa edged SMU 58-55 Wednesday night.

    Jerome Jordan added 12 points and 13 rebounds as the Golden Hurricane (21-9, 10-5) kept their hopes alive for a first-round bye in next week's Conference USA tournament in Tulsa.

    Derek Williams led the Mustangs (14-15, 7-8) with 15 points while Mouhammad Faye and Robert Nyakundi each scored 13.

    Uzoh hit a 3-pointer that put Tulsa ahead 56-47 with 2:18 to go, but two 3s by Faye helped SMU rally to within 56-55 with 44 seconds left.

    The Mustangs had a chance to take the lead, but Williams missed his shot on a drive. Uzoh rebounded the ball and was fouled. After Uzoh hit both free throws, Williams attempted a long 3-pointer, but it clanged off the backboard.
