The Columbia College men's basketball team advanced to the semifinals of the American Midwest Conference tournament with a 58-53 victory Thursday over host Hannibal-LaGrange.

The fourth-seeded Trojans (11-17) led 29-26 after the first half, but the Cougars used a 10-0 second-half run to move ahead, then held off the Trojans down the stretch.

The Cougars advance to a 4 p.m. Saturday semifinal game at No. 1-seeded McKendree.
