ASHEVILLE, N.C. - No. 5 seed Virginia Intermont registered the lone upset of the Appalachian Athletic Conference Men's Basketball Tournament quarterfinal round as the top three seeded teams all registered victories on Tuesday.

Virginia Intermont (16-14 overall) pulled out a 72-70 victory over host and No. 4 seed Bryan (Tenn.) to earn the right to face top-seeded Tennessee Wesleyan on Thursday. Four Cobras scored in double figures with Marquette Knight leading the way with 17 points. Jimmie Ross followed with 16. Virginia Intermont trailed 37-33 at the half but rallied during the final 20 minutes to collect the win. The Cobras shot 61.9 percent (13-of-21 shots) from the floor during the second half to fuel the comeback.

Tim Fortenberry paced Bryan (13-18 overall) with 17 points.

The Cobras will next play at Tennessee Wesleyan at 7 p.m. on Thursday, who had to rally late to fend off No. 8 seed Union (Ky.) 66-59. The final five minutes of regulation were frantic, as TWC went on a 7-2 run over a five minute span to take a 58-57 lead with 1:38 left. After a UC turnover on their next trip down the floor, TWC sunk two free throws to take a 60-57 lead with one minute left in regulation. TWC finished the game outscored Union 6-2 to seal the seven-point win.

Desmond Crisp led TWC (22-9 overall) with 20 points. Ian Davis paced Union (8-23 overall) with 13 points, while Josh Hurd registered a double-double with 12 points and 12 rebounds. 

No. 3 seed Bluefield (Va.) had little trouble in dispatching No. 6 seed Montreat (N.C.) 93-58. All five of Rams starters scored in double figures with Kearsten Marion setting the tone with 24 points. Bryon Carpenter followed with 18 points. LaBris Adams led Montreat (12-17 overall) with 12 points.

Bluefield (18-14 overall) will travel to face No. 2 seed Reinhardt (Ga.) on Thursday at 7 p.m. after the Eagles downed No. 7 seed Milligan (Tenn.) 63-54.
