KENNESAW, Ga. (AP) - Kamren Belin made the game-winning basket, with four seconds remaining, to lift Youngstown State past Florida International 74-72 in overtime on Saturday.
Belin was scoreless in the first half, but finished with 17 points and scored all nine Youngstown State (2-0) points in overtime, including two 3-pointers.
In overtime Raymond Taylor made FIU's only field goal, Rakeem Buckles made both of his free throws and Dennis Mavin went 2-for-4 from the line.
