TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -Nic Wise hit a 3-pointer with .1 second left in overtime Monday to give Arizona an 83-82 victory over Lipscomb.

After Lipscomb's Adnan Hodzic missed the second of two free throws to make it 82-80 with 4.7 seconds left, Arizona got the rebound and scrambled downcourt for a final shot. Wise threw up his desperation shot just as the buzzer sounded. It hit nothing but net.

Wise finished with 26 points for the Wildcats (5-5), who are 2-1 in overtime games this season.

Hodzic had 34 points for Lipscomb (4-7).

The Bison led most of the game before UA's Derrick Williams scored off an offensive rebound to tie it at 52.

Lipscomb's Brian Wright hit a 3-pointer with 1.5 seconds left after Jordan Burgason missed a 3-pointer with 3 seconds left to tie it at 69 and send it into overtime.
