ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Joel Smith scored 26 points, and Northeastern erased a 16-point second-half deficit Friday to beat Belmont 74-71 and advance to the final of the Great Alaska Shootout.

Smith was 8 of 14 from the field, including 6 of 9 from behind the arc, for the Huskies (4-1), who took their first lead, 70-68, on David Walker's 3-pointer with 58 seconds left. The Bruins (4-1) had scored 16 unanswered points - 14 of them by Ian Clark - to take a 55-39 lead with 12:58 to play.

Northeastern outscored Belmont 35-16 the rest of the way, with Smith hitting four free throws in the final minute to seal the victory.
