The NCAA record book (NCAA.org) lists a 7 OT game from 1981 (so pre-shot clock)... Cinncinnati (75) v. Bradley (73). [Division I]
The longest modern-era NCAA game was on 3/12/09-3/13/09 with 6 OTs. Syracuse vs. Uconn (127-117)
There was also a Division II 7 OT game... (Yankton and Black Hills on February 18, 1956).
NCAA doesn't list any other long OT D-1 games... just that the Cinncinnati/Bradley game is the longest.
I dug around on-line and found that Purdue and Minnesota has a six overtime game in the 1950s. This is another Pre-shot clock game and the source clearly reflects that.
(Page 30 of the Most "Memorable Moments in Purdue Basketball History."
Here's my last update, I found a USA today article on line from 2005 that lists another 5 overtime D-1 game as the fourth longest and does not indicated that it tied for fourth longest.
So the Baylor Texas A&M game may very well be the second 5 OT game in D-1 play.
Here are some records broken during the 5 OT game of Baylor v. Texas A&M on 23 January 2007.
Longest Big 12 Game (Source... ESPN SportsCenter)
Baylor breaks the all-time record with total points scored in OT -- 52 (old record 49 by Middle TN in 2000 (a 4 OT game)
That game is also the record for combined OT points-- 98 (old record 94 from the same game above... TN Tech was the opponent)
It looks like this 5 OT game that had 5 players foul out for one team (+ 2 others with 4 fouls) and 3 players foul out for the other team ties for longest in the shot clock era.
The March 12, 2009 Big East tournament game between Syracuse and Connecticut (both ranked, Division I teams) must be added to this list. This game extended to 6 OT, making it tied as the second-longest game in history and the longest of the shot-clock era.
This game also broke the records for points scored by a team in OT (56 by Syracuse) and for the combined points scored in OT (102 combined).
On Tuesday November 23rd, 2010, in Division III basketball, Skidmore College outlasted Southern Vermont College in a 7 OT game. Final score: Skidmore - 128, Southern Vermont - 123.

The longest game in NBA history was played on January 6, 1951 between the Indianapolis Olympians And the Rochester royals. After 78 minutes of gameplay and a record 6 overtimes, the longest basketball game concluded with a relatively low Score of 75-73 in favor of the Olympians.
The longest NBA game occurred on January 6, 1951 between the Indianapolis Olympians and the Rochester Royals. It took six overtimes to decide the final score of 75-73 in favor of Indianapolis. Since regulation is 48 minutes and overtime is 5 minutes, the total game was 78 minutes long. With commercials and timeouts, that would be about 4 hours!
It was Syracuse vs. UConn in 2008 Big East Semi-Finals. They played 6 OT's. Syracuse won.
exceeded the 4 regulation quarters and went into 6 over time periods

On Dec. 21, 1981, playing at Bradley University, the Bearcats needed seven overtimes to beat their opponents, 75-73. That roughly translates into the length of two entire basketball games.
The first basketball game was in Springfield,Massachusetts in 1891.
