TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - Khalil Small’s free throw with six seconds remaining in overtime gave Green Bay a 78-77 victory over Toledo on Saturday night.

Small took a pass while curling underneath to the basket, was fouled and made 1 of 2 free throws. Toledo’s Steve Taylor rebounded the miss and went down the floor but lost control of the ball while being defended and couldn’t get a shot off in time.

An 8-1 run capped by a Taylor basket gave Toledo (3-5) a 63-58 lead but the Rockets wouldn’t get another field goal in the final 4:57 of regulation. Green Bay’s Kerem Kanter sent the game into overtime with five seconds left with a shot in the paint to tie it 66-all.

Charles Cooper led the Phoenix (4-4) with 18 points. Kanter scored 17.

Taylor led Toledo with 22 points and 10 rebounds. Jonathan Williams added 20 points.

The Rockets have already played four overtime games, going 2-2.
