Middle Tennessee claims 1st C-USA title in school history

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) Reggie Upshaw made three 3-pointers and scored 19 points, JaCorey Williams added 15 points and Middle Tennessee claimed its first Conference USA title with a 66-64 victory over UAB on Sunday.

Hakeem Baxter missed two free throws for UAB with 2:05 left and at the other end, Upshaw tied it at 64-all on an open 3-pointer from the wing.

After UAB was off on a corner 3-pointer, Middle Tennessee didn't take a timeout and Williams hit a mid-range jumper with 4.4 seconds left. UAB had a good look from beyond the arc at the buzzer but Dirk Williams's shot bounced off the rim.
