Tied up at 98 in the second extra period, DiLeo got his defender in the air on a pump fake with 0.9 seconds left and made all three free throws to clinch the win. Central Michigan (15-8, 4-6 Mid-American Conference) never led in regulation nor in the first overtime but stayed alive with a key bucket from Kevin McKay at the end of the second half to tie the score at 77. Williams banked in a 3-pointer at the end of the first OT to tie it at 89.
A pair of free throws from Williams early in the second overtime period gave Central Michigan its first lead of the game, 91-89, and the teams knotted the score four more times over the next 3 1/2 minutes before DiLeo went 3 for 3 at the line to win it.
Shawn Roundtree added 22 points, Luke Meyer had 14 points, McKay scored 13 and DiLeo hauled in 14 rebounds to go with eight points for the Chippewas, who dominated at the free throw line, 31 of 36 to Ohio's 16 for 31.
