In a high scoring first half in which both teams shot over 56 percent, Youngstown State (15-16, 6-10) led The Golden Grizzlies 45-43 at the break.
The pace slowed with the start of the second period but Bader's jumper at 12:51 put Oakland (12-19, 7-9) up 54-53. Bader continued his 3-point assault as Oakland bumped the lead to 10 points with 3 minutes to play and rode it into the buzzer.
Oakland's Kendrick Perry scored 20 points before the break, but was held to 10 in the second half.
