ROCHESTER, Mich. (AP) - T.J. Williams had 11 rebounds and 22 points, including a fade away jumper at the buzzer to lift Northeastern over Oakland 61-59 on Tuesday night.

Northeastern (7-5) never trailed in the second half and had a 59-56 lead with a minute left. Martez Walker, who finished 0 of 8 from the floor, shot a deep 3-pointer and was fouled with 9.6 seconds left. Walker made all three free throws to tie it at 59.

Williams took the inbounds pass, drove the lane, then pulled back and made the game-winner while falling.

Maxime Boursiquot added 16 points for the Huskies, who finished 3-of-17 shooting from long range and had 19 turnovers.

Jalen Hayes scored 18 points to lead Oakland (9-2), which shot just 6 of 26 from 3-point range. The Golden Grizzlies missed three 3-point shots and a free throw in the final two minutes.
