Hall helps Kent State top UALR 60-55 in OT

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) Jimmy Hall scored 14 points, including a three-point play with 32 seconds left in overtime, and Kent State edged Arkansas-Little Rock 60-55 on Sunday.

Hall ran a pick-and-roll with Kris Brewer, who missed a shot at the end of regulation, for the critical play that gave the Golden Flashes (6-2) a 59-53 lead. The Trojans (4-4) followed with a basket by Ben Dillard, but it took three offensive rebounds to get there and only five seconds were left.

Chris Ortiz added a final free throw for the win.

Ortiz had a key sequence earlier, drawing a charge and then converting on the other end go put Kent State up 56-53 before the teams went scoreless for three minutes.

Devareaux Manley added 12 points for Kent State and Hall had eight rebounds.

Roger Woods led UALR with 12 points while James White and Dillard split 22.
