CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) -- Anthony Gill made several big buckets late in the second half and finished with 19 points to lead Virginia over SMU 76-73 in the semifinals of the Corpus Christi Challenge Friday evening.

Virginia (6-1) will face the winner of Missouri State and Texas A&M in the final on Saturday.

Gill scored 12 points down the stretch to lead the Cavaliers to a 7-point lead with 5:05 remaining.

SMU responded though on several baskets inside the paint, the last a Yanick Moreira lay-in on a nice feed from Markus Kennedy. Moreira was fouled by Joe Harris on the play, and the made free throw drew the lead to 74-73.

Keith Frazier stole the ball from Virginia as they tried to kill the clock, but Moreira was called for travelling with 2.0 seconds remaining. On the in-bounds play, Harris was fouled and made both ensuing free throws to seal the victory.

The Mustangs will play the loser of the Texas A&M/Missouri State game on Saturday, Nov. 30 at 5:30 p.m. CT. The game will be broadcast on CBS SportsNetwork with radio on KAAM 770 AM.
