CONWAY, Ark. -- Anthony Borden's put-back basket as time expired in overtime -- his team's second buzzer-beating shot of the day -- gave Central Arkansas an 86-84 victory against Oral Roberts on Saturday.
Jarvis Garner scored 34 points for the Bears (13-16, 7-11 Southland Conference), and his three-pointer as the clock hit zeroes in regulation tied the game at 75-all and forced the extra session. Robert Crawford added 18 points and LaQuentin Miles 12 points and seven rebounds.
Borden finished with eight points, six rebounds and five blocked shots.
Garner hit six 3-pointers for Central Arkansas, which clinched the No. 7 seed in the conference tournament and will play sixth-seeded Sam Houston State on Wednesday in Katy, Texas. The winner of that game will play No. 3 seed Oral Roberts (18-13, 13-5) in Thursday's quarterfinals.
Colorado State graduate transfer John Gillon has chosen Syracuse, giving the Orange a potential starter at point guard entering the 2016-17 season.
DeSean Murray, who averaged 20.2 points as a sophomore at Presbyterian, will transfer to Auburn to play for coach Bruce Pearl.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
