NEWARK, N.J. -- Chris Flores scored 28 points, including a 3-pointer in the third overtime, as New Jersey Institute of Technology outlasted Chicago State 83-78 Saturday in a Great West Conference marathon.

The Highlanders (8-8, 2-0), who got 23 points from Ryan Woods and 14 from P.J. Miller, led 33-24 at halftime. Clarke Rosenberg's foul shot with 0:48 left in regulation tied it 53-53, forcing overtime.

The first OT ended 59-59 after NJIT's Sean McCarthy missed the second of two foul shots.

In the second overtime, Flores scored five of the Highlanders' eight points. But Markus Starks' tip-in with one second left tied it at 67-67.

In the third overtime, the Highlanders went on a 13-4 run that included three treys, a pair by Woods that sandwiched Flores' trey.

Daquan Holiday grabbed 17 rebounds for NJIT, which hit 29 of 37 free throws. Chicago State (4-14, 0-1) was 14 of 18.
