CONWAY, Ark. -- Jarvis Garner tied his career high with 38 points, grabbed 15 rebounds and hit the game-sealing free throws for Central Arkansas in the third overtime of a 103-98 victory over McNeese State on Thursday night.

Down 97-96 with 2:53 remaining in the third overtime, Deshone McClure gave Central Arkansas (7-11, 2-5 Southland) the lead with a dunk, then Garner's jumper made it 100-97 and his two free throws with 21 seconds left sealed the deal.

Garner tied it at 78 as time expired at the end of regulation with a 3-pointer and hit another big shot from beyond the arc with 3 seconds left in overtime to tie it at 86, sending the teams to a second overtime.

LaQuentin Miles had 25 points and 10 assists for the Bears.
