PEORIA, Ill. (AP)—Dalron Johnson hit a 3-pointer with less than a second to go in overtime to give UNLV an 85-83 win over Bradley on Saturday night.
The 6-foot-10 Johnson scored 26 points and made 5-of-6 3-pointers for UNLV (5-1)—including the game-winner that came with half a second left on the clock. J.K. Edwards had 21 points and 10 rebounds, and Marcus Banks had 15 points and five assists.
The Runnin’ Rebels, who got just five points from their bench, led by as many as nine in the second half but were forced into overtime when James Gillingham’s jumper tied it at 69.
Bradley (2-4) took a one-point lead in overtime when Demetrius Hunter made a pair of free throws with eight seconds left.
Banks then took the ball up the court, drove toward the basket and passed it out to Johnson for the game winner.
Phillip Gilbert had 23 points and Danny Granger had 16 points and 10 rebounds for Bradley. Gillingham had 17 points and six assists.
