CONWAY, Ark. (AP) - Ryan Williams scored 20 points to lead five Central Arkansas players in double figures, and the Bears made free throws down the stretch to hold off Tennessee-Martin 87-86 on Wednesday night.
The Bears (3-3) were shaky from the free-throw stripe, making 12 of 22 (54.5 percent) for the game. But they hit 4 of 6 in the final minute, just enough to withstand two 3-pointers by UT-Martin's Dee Oldham in the last eight seconds.
LaQuentin Miles scored 16 points, Jordan Harks 15, Robert Crawford 14 and DeShone McClure 12 for Central Arkansas, the first home team to win in the last six meetings between the schools.
Myles Taylor scored 19 points and Mike Liabo 15 for the Skyhawks (3-6). Tobias Dowdell added 13 points and 13 rebounds.
