KATY, Texas (AP)—Patrick Sullivan’s free throw with 2.3 seconds left lifted Southeastern Louisiana to a 79-78 overtime victory over Texas State in the quarterfinals of the Southland Conference tournament Wednesday night.
Sullivan was fouled on a drive. After missing the front end, he made the second.
Texas State’s Cameron Johnson then caught a long inbounds pass but missed a 12-foot jumper at the buzzer.
On Thursday night, the Lions face top-seeded Sam Houston State, which defeated eighth-seeded Nicholls State 62-57.

Texas State (15-16) was paced by Johnson’s 23 points and Ryan White’s 17.
After going 2 of 10 on 3-pointers in the first half, Southeastern Louisiana connected on 7 of 10 in the second half.
