LAS VEGAS, NV - Caleb Love kept hitting big shots.

But his last one rimmed out and Johnell Davis had too many answers as No. 14 FAU edged No. 4 Arizona in a 96-95 double overtime thriller on Saturday at the Desert Classic in Las Vegas.

Davis posted a game-high 35 points to lift the Owls to victory in a game that had the energy of a high-stakes March showdown. The Wildcats had a chance to win at the second overtime buzzer. But Love's long-distance shot as time expired rimmed out, securing victory for the Owls.

Love finished with 26 points and five rebounds while hitting several big shots to keep the Wildcats alive through the extra sessions. But the Owls proved too much to overcome down the stretch.
