KENNESAW, Ga. (AP) - Kamren Belin made the game-winning basket, with four seconds remaining, to lift Youngstown State past Florida International 74-72 in overtime on Saturday.

Belin was scoreless in the first half, but finished with 17 points and scored all nine Youngstown State (2-0) points in overtime, including two 3-pointers.

In overtime Raymond Taylor made FIU's only field goal, Rakeem Buckles made both of his free throws and Dennis Mavin went 2-for-4 from the line.

FIU (0-2) was held scoreless over the last 6:47 of regulation. Buckles made a layup for FIU's final basket of the second half, which pushed its lead to 65-52. Buckles finished with 20 points and 13 rebounds.

Youngstown State's Ryan Weber made 1-of-2 free throws with 35 seconds left to tie the game at 65. Buckles missed a layup with three seconds remaining that would have won it in regulation for FIU.
