Isaiah Thomas carried the Washington Huskies through the Pac-10 Tournament and Saturday was no different. With Abdul Gaddy sidelined with an injury and Venoy Overton suspended, the point guard duties rested solely on Thomas, and boy did he deliver. Twice during the Pac-10 Tournament Championship, Thomas saved the game for the Huskies, helping send it into overtime before sealing the win with an impressive buzzer beater.
In regulation, it was Thomas drawing the defense in and finding C.J. Wilcox for the game-tying three-pointer. Then, in overtime, Thomas capped a wild finish with a step-back two-pointer at the buzzer for the win. The Wildcats hit a three on the other end to knot the game with time winding down before Thomas put an end to it all, taking it upon himself on the offensive end.

Game. Over. Note Gus Johnson calling Thomas cold-blooded, as well.
Thomas was clutch for the Huskies all day, finish with 28 points, five rebounds and seven assists in the Huskies 77-75 overtime win. Washington is assured of an NCAA Tournament bid after winning the Pac-10 Tournament, thanks in large part to Thomas' heroics.
