Deshaun Morman and Martin made consecutive 3s to give the Tigers a 73-69 lead with 3:32 remaining in the extra period. The Bears pulled to 73-71, but Martin added five points and Morsell shot 4 of 4 from the line to seal it.

Martin made 3-pointer with 10 seconds left in regulation to tie it at 67, and Dennis Tunstall and Martin blocked layup attempts to force overtime.
