In the Summit League conference tournament semifinal, the No. 4 Oral Roberts Golden Eagles eeked out a 90-88 win over the No. 1 South Dakota State Jackrabbits to advance to the conference final, and will play tomorrow night for a trip to the NCAA Tournament.

Max Abmas missed the jumper, but Kevin Obanor got the rebound and tip-in right at the rim, as the clock expired as it fell through the net.

Leading 88-85 with nine seconds remaining, Carlos Jurgens fouled Baylor Scheierman while shooting a three-pointer, giving SDSU a chance to tie the game from the free throw line.

Scheierman knocked them all in, leaving the Jackrabbits only in need of a stop to get to overtime. But now the No. 1 seed and favorite will go home, while Oral Roberts will play the winner of the South Dakota vs. North Dakota State game that begins at 9:45 p.m. ET.

The final is tomorrow night at 9:00 p.m. ET on ESPN2.
