— Domonic Tilford and Bryan Sherrer each scored 10 first-half points Monday as South Alabama opened a big lead over Arkansas-Little Rock and took a 54-44 victory in a Sun Belt Conference semifinal despite shooting 22 percent in the second half.

While the Jaguars (20-12) looked bad, the Trojans (23-8) looked worse. UALR had five turnovers in the first 7:20 while falling behind 20-5. A pair of DeAndre' Coleman baskets made it 27-11 with 6:18 left before halftime and the Trojans couldn't take advantage when South Alabama later went cold.

At one point in the second half, South Alabama was shooting 2-of-15 from the floor, or 13 percent. The Trojans weren't much better, shooting 19 percent. Tilford and Sherrer each finished with 17 points. John Fowler and Mike Smith had 10 for Arkansas-Little Rock.

The Jaguars play Western Kentucky in Tuesday's final.
