CLEVELAND (AP) Jaelan Sanford scored 21 points, Luke Knapke added 16 and Toledo advanced to the semifinals of the Mid-American Conference Tournament by edging Miami (Ohio) 71-69 on Thursday night.
The Rockets (22-10) moved on only after Miami freshman guard Nike Sibande missed a potential game-winning 3-pointer in the final second.
The win could have been costly for No. 2 seed Toledo as Tre'Shaun Fletcher, the MAC's player of the year, limped off the floor favoring his left leg. Fletcher finished with 16 points and nine rebounds.
