CULLOWHEE, N.C. (AP) — T.J. Cromer scored 18 points, Tevin Glass added 14 and East Tennessee State held Western Carolina to 12 points in the first half on its way to a 68-52 on Saturday night to clinch at least a share of the Southern Conference championship.

ETSU (24-6, 14-3) will play at UNC Greensboro (13-4) on Monday night in a regular-season finale. If UNCG wins, there would be a three-way tie for first with Furman (14-4). UNCG would be awarded the No. 1 seed to the conference tournament via a tiebreaker.

The Buccaneers held the Catamounts to 23 percent shooting (6 of 26) in the first half, forcing 11 turnovers and outscoring WCU 13-0 on those errors. A 17-0 run midway through the half built a 23-4 lead on the way to a 32-12 halftime advantage.

WCU got within 11 with nine minutes left but no closer.

Marc Gosselin led WCU (8-22, 3-14) with 15 points and nine rebounds.
