ROCHESTER, Mich. (AP) — Travis Bader drilled two free throws with one second left in regulation, then hit another pair with 9 seconds left in overtime to allow No. 6-seeded Oakland to escape No. 7 Youngstown State, 96-92 in a Horizon League tournament opener Tuesday.

Oakland trailed by 10 with three minutes to play in regulation, but scored 10-straight points to pull even at 75 on three free throws by Bader. Youngstown State led by four with eight seconds left, but Bader drilled a 3 to make it 80-79, then fouled Ryan Weber with one second left, who missed the first of two free throws to make it 81-79.

Fletcher Larson fouled Bader on the in-bounds play and Bader forced the extra period.

Bader finished with 39 points and was 18 of 18 from the line for Oakland (13-19).

Kendrick Perry scored 35 points and Ryan Weber added 22 to lead Youngstown State (15-17).
