ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) Stephen Croone and Geoff Beans combined to shoot 11 of 12 at the free throw line in the final minute, and 10th-seeded Furman upset No. 2 seed Chattanooga 69-67 in the Southern Conference tournament quarterfinals on Saturday.

The Paladins (10-21) will play either No. 3 seed Mercer (17-14) or sixth-seeded VMI (11-18) in the semifinals on Sunday.
