TORONTO (AP) _ Free throws by Marchello Vealy and Robert Jarvis in the final 25 seconds of overtime lift Oral Roberts to a 77-75 win over the University of Toronto.

The Golden Eagles are playing three exhibition basketball games this weekend in Canada.

Vealy made one free throw with 25 seconds left to put ORU ahead by one point, and Jarvis made 1-of-2 free throws with eight seconds left to push the lead to two points.

Toronto's Justin Holmes missed a well-guarded desperation 3-point attempt at the buzzer.

Jarvis and Shawn King each scored 16 points for ORU. Jarvis hit five 3-point shots while King added nine rebounds and three blocked shots.

Vealy and Moses Ehambe added 11 points each for the Golden Eagles. Ahmed Nazmi led Toronto with 23 points.

ORU will play the University of Guelph Monday night.
