MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -Terrence Williams scored 20 points and No. 6 Louisville clinched the Big East regular-season title Saturday night, beating West Virginia 62-59.
Louisville (25-5, 16-2) held on to earn the top seed in the conference tournament, taking advantage of third-ranked Pittsburgh's 70-60 win over No. 1 Connecticut earlier Saturday.
Freshman Kevin Jones scored a season-high 19 points for West Virginia (21-10, 10-8).
Neither team led by more than four points in a tightly contested second half that came down to the final shot.
Jerry Smith made two free throws to put Louisville ahead 62-58 with 12 seconds left. After West Virginia's Da'Sean Butler made a free throw, Williams was fouled and missed two straight from the line. But Butler's 3-point attempt bounced off the rim as time ran out.
