ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) James Sinclair hit two 3-pointers in overtime and had 26 points as fifth-seeded Western Carolina upset top-seeded Davidson 99-97 in the semifinals of the Southern Conference tournament Sunday.

Western Carolina came back from a 15-point deficit and snapped Davidson's 13-game winning streak.

Sinclair's 3-pointer opened the overtime session and his second broke a tie at 92. Brooks made 1 of 2 from the line with 30 second left for 97-all. Trey Sumler was fouled in the lane and made both free throws for the win.
