SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) — Ricardo Glenn scored 22 points and third-seeded USC Upstate topped No. 6 seed North Florida 80-74 Tuesday in the first round of the Atlantic Sun tournament.

The Ospreys cut the lead to 68-62 with 4:10 remaining, before Glenn responded with a three-point play. The lead was cut to 75-70 with 37 seconds left, but USC Upstate hit 5 of 6 from the line in the last 35 seconds to preserve the win.

Chris Davenport had 27 points and 10 rebounds to lead North Florida. Dallas Moore added 13 points and Travis Wallace had 12.
