GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP)—Erik Kangas’ 3-pointer with 52 seconds left in overtime lifted Oakland, Michigan, to a 79-76 victory over Wisconsin-Green Bay in a nonconference game on Thursday night.

Kangas came off a screen, got the ball in the corner and fired his 3-pointer over Green Bay’s Terry Evans, who had blocked Kangas’ shot at the end of regulation to preserve the tie.

That gave Oakland a 75-73 lead.

The Golden Grizzlies (7-5) then made 4-of-4 free throws in the final 23.2 seconds to hand the Phoenix (6-4) its first home loss of the season.

A 3-pointer by Dan Waterstadt seemingly put the Grizzlies in control at 64-53 with 2:55 remaining in regulation, but a 13-2 run by the Phoenix forced overtime.

Kangas led Oakland with 27 points.

Ryan Tillema led Green Bay with 22 points.
