Pac-10 Tournament 2011 Championship: Washington, Arizona Head To Overtime For First Time In Tournament History

Picture_60_medium

Seattle University women's basketball assistant coach and Arizona alum summed up what sent this game into overtime tied at 68 perfectly.

With less than 10 seconds left and Arizona up three, Washington Huskies guard Isaiah Thomas drove left and the defender on Terrence Ross dropped off to help leaving the rapidly emerging freshman scorer open for a game-tying three to send the game into overtime.

It is the first time in tournament history that a championship game has gone into overtime.

For the Huskies though, trouble looms: both Matthew Bryan-Amaning and Aziz N'Diaye carried four fouls with them into overtime.

Meanwhile, Arizona's Derrick Williams is proving that more than four defenders are required to hold him while UW's Isaiah Thomas set up 3-pointers from and hit a three to contribute to the overtime effort.
