LOUISVILLE, Ky. Terry Cameron was able to smile in spite of the blood on his jersey. And he was not the only Southern Mississippi player showing off his teeth. USM erased a 13-point deficit with a 17-4 run to close regulation, then survived two overtimes to beat third-seeded South Florida 92-87 in a Metro Conference Tournament quarterfinal game before a crowd of 6,192 at Freedom Hall.
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. After a ragged, defensive affair, the Alabama Crimson Tide escaped by the hair of their chinny chin-chins Friday night. Meanwhile, Florida huffed, puffed and Dan Cross tried to blow the Tide's house down with a 3-point attempt at the final buzzer. But when it bounced off the rim, the Tide preserved a 62-60 quarterfinal victory in front of 17,243 at Birmingham-Jefferson Civic Center.
