CONWAY, Ark. -- Payten Ricks knocked down three clutch free throws with a second left to force overtime, then scored the game-winning basket on a driving layup with four seconds remaining to lift Abilene Christian to a 70-69 win over Central Arkansas on Saturday night.
Aaron Weidenaar's free throw with :11 left in regulation gave the Bears a 62-59 advantage, but Ricks drew a foul from Eddy Kayouloud in the backcourt on a last-second 3-point attempt and made all three shots to knot the game at 62-62.
The Wildcats led by four after Reggie Miller's free throw with 1:50 to in OT, but Kayouloud scored at the basket and Weidenaar hit a 3 with :11 left to take a 69-68 lead before Ricks drove for the game-winner.
Rylan Bergersen scored 16 points to lead Central Arkansas (5-15, 4-5). Weidenaar added 14 points, Deandre Jones had 12 and Kayouloud 11.
