Butler stops Ohio State with late overtime shot

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Kelan Martin hit a layup with 3.8 seconds left and Butler edged Ohio State 67-66 in overtime on Sunday for the final day of the Phil Knight Invitational tournament.

Martin finished with 24 points for Butler (5-2) in the win over former coach Chris Holtmann’s new team. Kamar Baldwin added 14.

C.J. Jackson’s free throws gave the Buckeyes a 66-65 lead with just under a minute to go in the extra period.

The Bulldogs controlled the clock before Martin’s layup and Jackson’s heave missed the mark at the buzzer.
