ASHEVILLE, N.C. - No. 1 seed Tennessee Wesleyan and No. 2 seed Reinhardt (Ga.) will meet up for the Appalachian Athletic Conference Men's Basketball Tournament championship after both survived the semifinal round on Thursday.

The championship game is set for Saturday at 7 p.m. in Athens, Tenn.

Tennessee Wesleyan (23-9 overall) had to work hard to get past No. 5 Virginia Intermont to pull out the 73-68 victory. The Bulldogs trailed 33-28 at the half and found themselves down 47-42 with 13:30 to play. However, Tennessee Wesleyan went on a 15-4 run to grab a 57-51 advantage with 7:03 to play. Tennessee Wesleyan led by as much as 10 points down the stretch, but the Cobras rallied to cut the deficit to 71-68 following a Tihlee Anderson bucket with 11 seconds to play. But Tennessee Wesleyan hit 2-of-4 free throws in the closing moments to seal the five-point win.

Jesse Booher came off the bench to lead Tennessee Wesleyan with 17 points. Desmond Crisp helped out with 16 points as four Bulldogs scored in double figures. 

For Virginia Intermont (16-15 overall), Justin Morris led the way with a game-high 23 points. Thomas Hawkins netted 17 points.

Reinhardt (18-11 overall) used a 16-2 run to close out the first half to turn a 17-17 tie into a 33-19 halftime cushion over No. 3 seed Bluefield (Va.). The Eagles maintained a double-double lead throughout the second half, owning as much as a 29-point lead en route to the 80-55 victory.
