    NEW BRITAIN, Conn. (AP) -- Darnell Harris made two free throws with no time showing on the clock in the fourth overtime to give LaSalle a 107-106 victory over Central Connecticut Saturday.

    Central (4-4) led 106-102 after Tristan Blackwood made two free throws with 20.9 seconds left, but Steven Smith (41 points) hit a 3-pointer with 8.6 seconds remaining to pull the Explorers within one.

    After CCSU failed to score, Harris raced down the floor and took a shot from just outside the arc, but drew a foul with no time left. He missed the first foul shot, but made the next two to seal the win for LaSalle (6-0).

    Javier Mojica's 3-pointer with 2:56 left in the fourth overtime capped a 6-0 Central run and gave the Blue Devils a 100-95 lead. Smith hit a turnaround in the lane, then later scored again to tie the game at 100 with 1:32 left.

    Blackwood scored on an offensive rebound, then later made two free throws to give the Blue Devils a 104-100 lead.

    Mojica forced the game into the fourth overtime with a jumper from the left elbow with 4.4 seconds left in the third extra session.

    Blackwood led Central with 28 points and nine assists. Justin Chiera added 21 points for the Blue Devils, while Obie Nwadike had 19 points and 18 rebounds.

    Smith also had 10 rebounds, while Harris finished with 16 points for LaSalle.
