An overtime period in college basketball is 5 minutes.
NBA overtime periods are 5 minutes
It goes to Overtime (in other words, they add an extra quarter to the game), which is 5 minutes long. The team who has the highest points after the overtime ends up winning the game. If they are still tied after the overtime, they have another overtime, and they continue having overtime until one team gets a higher score than the other after the overtime.
A basketball game (NBA) is technically only 48 minutes. However, with half-time, timeouts, fouls, and close games, a basketball game is actually around 2 1/2 hours. The game is divided into 4 quarters, each 12 minutes long. Should the score be tied at the end of the fourth quarter, the game will go into a 5 minute overtime period. Should the game be tied at the end of overtime, there will be a 5 minute second overtime, and so on. College basketball games are 40 minutes, with no quarters but instead two 20 minute halves. If the score is tied at the end of regulation, the game will proceed into a five minute bonus period called overtime, similar to the NBA.
In basketball, the overtime length is usually equal to half the time of a standard quarter. In high school varsity basketball this is four minutes.
Around a little bit more than 2 hours if it doesn't go into overtime.

I'll start off guessing you've just become a basketball fan because this is pretty basic stuff. But to answer your question, they go to overtime which is only 5 minutes long instead of 12 minutes for a normal quarter. If the teams are tied again, they go to second overtime, then triple overtime, quadruple overtime, and so on. For just an interesting fact, the longest NBA game was on TV for 4 hours, with six overtimes. The finalscore was only 75-73, which isn't much score even for a normal game.
College games are usually around 2 hours, including team and TV times out plus halftime. The length of the game is extended if the teams go into overtime.
Simple you have to sit out the rest of the game including overtime.
You go into overtime. It would be 5 extra minutes
