Oral Roberts will next play No. 3 seed Arkansas in a South Region contest. Obanor’s jumper gave the Golden Eagles a 77-76 lead with 2:53 left after they trailed by 11 in the second half.
Noah Locke countered for Florida’s 78-77 lead but DeShang Weaver’s 3-pointer with 2:10 left, his first and only points of the game, put Oral Roberts up 80-78.
Oral Roberts became the bracket buster when the Golden Eagles defeated Ohio State 75-72 in overtime on Friday, marking the ninth time a 15 seed had knocked off a No. 2 seed. It was their first NCAA Tournament win since 1974.
