Winthrop upsets High Point 62-60

AP - Sports

CONWAY, S.C. (AP) -- Andre Smith made a 3-point shot over two defenders with .5 seconds left as Winthrop, the No. 4 seed out of the South Division, upset High Point, the North's No. 1 seed, 62-60 in a Big South quarterfinal on Friday.

It looked like High Point, which had trailed since the 3:21 mark, might avoid the upset after Adam Weary made a floater with 6 seconds left. But Smith took the inbounds pass, raced down court, and put up the winning shot from about 25 feet out. A desperation shot by High Point was late and off the mark.

Winthrop (19-12), which has defeated High Point (16-14) in all five of their tournament meetings, advanced to a Saturday semifinal against UNC Asheville.

Keon Moore finished with 23 points and Smith 12 for the Eagles.

Conference player of the year John Brown scored 17 points for High Point, which had a six-game winning streak snapped.
