    TULSA, Okla. -- Jordan Swing scored 17 points, including a layup with 9 seconds to play, and UAB beat SMU 53-52 in the opener of the Conference USA tournament on Wednesday.

    Swing had a team-high nine rebounds and was 7 of 13 from the field for the game. Rod Rucker had 11 points.

    UAB was up 32-23 at halftime and led until Brian Bernardi hit two free throws to put the Mustangs up 52-51 with 29 seconds remaining. Swing's layup put the Blazers (16-16) back on top. No. 10 seed SMU missed a jumper with a second to play.

    Jalen Jones led SMU (15-17) with 13 points and 10 rebounds. Cannen Cunningham had 11 points.
