With only seconds remaining and both teams assuming overtime, Bell-Holter stole a long inbound pass from UA-Little Rock. He took a few dribbles and heaved a last-second prayer from beyond the half-court line. Miraculously, the shot banked in causing Bell-Holter and his teammates to erupt. Oral Roberts beat UA-Little Rock 58-55. To view the play on YouTube visit: http://bit.ly/zocbKd.
