NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Kavin Gilder-Tilbury scored 23 points and Bobby Conley 14, and both hit key shots to lead Texas State over Tulane 69-66 in overtime on Friday.

Gilder-Tilbury sank a contested, high-arcing 3-pointer with 10 seconds left in regulation to tie the game at 60 and send it to overtime where Conley made a 3-pointer with 38 seconds left for what proved to be the game-winner.

Tulane (3-9) had a final chance with 2.7 seconds left after deflecting a Texas State inbounds pass off a Bobcats player, but the Green Wave then had its inbounds pass stolen by Conley after a scramble on the floor.

Gilder-Tilbury and Conley both made three 3-pointers with the Bobcats (7-5) making 9 of 20. Nijal Pearson added 11 points.

Cameron Reynolds scored 20 points for the Green Wave with Malik Morgan adding 15 points and 10 rebounds and Ryan Smith 15 points and six blocks.
