NEW ORLEANS -- Kevin Hill hit a pair of free throws with 1 second left in regulation to force overtime -- his only points of the night -- and New Orleans eked out a 75-73 victory over Texas-Pan American on Wednesday night.
After the Broncs' Brandon Provost hit a 3-pointer to put Texas-Pan American up 67-65 with 4 seconds left, Shaquille Hines fouled Hill with a second remaining, and the freshman hit both free throws to force the extra session.
New Orleans (7-13) opened overtime on a 6-1 run and held Texas-Pan American (12-12) without a field goal for the final 2:27.
The win was New Orleans' second in a row and third in its past four, including a triple overtime win over New Jersey Institute of Technology on Jan. 21.
Provost led the Broncs with 24 points.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
