LAS VEGAS (CBS/AP) -Adrian Oliver hit a pullup jumper with 5 seconds left on his way to 29 points and San Jose State had to sweat out a last-second review to beat Hawaii 75-74 in the first round of the Western Athletic Conference tournament on Wednesday.

San Jose State (16-14), the eighth seed, trailed most of the way before a late run put the Spartans up five with less than 2 minutes left.

Fifth-seeded Hawaii (18-12) rallied to go up one in the closing seconds, but couldn’t stop Oliver near the free-throw line. The Rainbow Warriors thought they had the game won when Bill Amis tipped in Jeremiah Ostrowski’s desperation shot at the buzzer, but the officials ruled the basket no good after a video review.

Wil Carter added 15 points for San Jose State, which moves on to face No. 4 seed Idaho in Thursday’s quarterfinals at Orleans Arena.
