BOWLING GREEN, Ky. -- George Fant scored a career-high 27 points and tied a career-high with 14 rebounds as Western Kentucky outlasted Arkansas State 82-77 in double-overtime Saturday night.

Chris Harrison-Docks scored four of his 13 points during a 7-0 WKU (11-7, 3-2 Sun Belt Conference) run in the second overtime that pushed the Hilltoppers' lead to 80-72 with 24 seconds left.

Arkansas State (10-7, 3-3), which made 26-of-54 (48 percent) field goals in regulation, made just 2-of-12 field goals in the extra frames.
