  •  

DEKALB, Ill. (AP) Jordan Threloff split a pair of free throws with 15 seconds left in overtime for the games' final point as seventh-seeded Northern Illinois beat No. 10 seed Bowling Green 54-51 in the first round of the Mid-American Conference tournament on Monday.

Jehvon Clarke's game-tying 3-point attempt was off the mark.
