    MACON, Ga. -- Mike Smith scored 24 points as second-seeded East Tennessee State held off Campbell 54-53 on Wednesday night in an Atlantic Sun Conference tournament quarterfinal.

    The Buccaneers (22-10) advance to the semifinals for the fifth consecutive year, the conference's longest active streak. They will face the winner of Thursday night's Jacksonville-North Florida game at 9 p.m. on Friday.

    Eric Griffin had 16 points for the Camels (12-19), who trailed 41-26 with 14:23 to play but pulled within one with 35 seconds left. Smith, however, stole the ball from Junard Hartley with three seconds left to seal the win.

    ETSU improved to 15-2 all-time against Campbell and has eliminated the Camels in the past two A-Sun tournaments.

    The Camels, who are leaving the conference after this year, lost their last five A-Sun tournament games after winning a 2007 quarterfinal against Jacksonville.
