PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Darryl Bryant's 3-pointer with just over a second left in overtime gave West Virginia an 87-84 win over Providence on Sunday.

The two teams exchanged leads throughout the extra period, and Providence's Gerard Coleman made 1 of 2 free throws to tie it at 84-all with 10 seconds left. Bryant then drove down the court and hit the game-winner.

Bryant led the Mountaineers (16-8, 6-5 Big East) with 32 points, and Deniz Kilicli added a career-high 22.

Providence (13-11, 2-9) got off to a hot start, making 16 of 18 from the field. But West Virginia put together a 12-3 run at the end of the first half to make 42-36 at halftime.

West Virginia trailed 70-63 with 5:29 left in regulation and scored six straight, including four by Bryant.

Coleman scored 30 points to lead the Friars, who lost their eighth straight to West Virginia.
