James Dawn made two free throws after time expired to give Arkansas Little Rock a 42-41 victory over Baylor Thursday night in the first round of the National Invitation Tournament at Little Rock, Ark.
Baylor Coach Gene Iba accused the timekeeper of deliberately delaying the buzzer.
"If you have to come down here and deal with classless people who will look you in the eye and tell you something like that, there's no use going to the NIT," Iba said.
He said that timekeeper Ray Rainey said, "I did it and I enjoyed it." Rainey denied making such a statement.
The clock showed all zeroes when Little Rock (24-9) got the ball out of bounds after Frank Williams of Baylor (18-13) was called for traveling. The Trojans, trailing, 41-40, threw the ball to Dawn, who was fouled as he missed a jump shot.
Arkansas Little Rock will play host to Stephen F. Austin in the second round Monday.
