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.
