TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- Steven Idlet scored 15 points and snagged nine rebounds as Tulsa came back to send the game to overtime in a thrilling 80-75 victory over Texas-Arlington Saturday night.

With Tulsa (5-6) trailing UTA by four with 26 seconds left, Jordan Clarkson nailed a jumper to get the Golden Hurricane within two points. Following a turnover, Tulsa's Eric McClellan scored on a lay-up to tie the game at 68, ensuring overtime.

Tulsa went 7 for 7 from the free throw line overtime's final minute to turn a one-point deficit into a five-point win.

UTA (4-4) was undone by poor free throw shooting, making 16 on 26 attempts. LaMarcus Reed of UTA led all scorers with 20 points.

The Mavericks shot 62.5 from 3-point range in the second half, enabling them to match Tulsa's balanced offensive attack in which five players scored in double figures.

Tulsa snapped a four-game losing streak.
