Champions! UW Huskies Basketball – University of Washington Beats Arizona For The Pac-10 Tournament Championship
The University of Washington men’s basketball team laid claim to a second-straight Pac-10 tournament title with a last-second win over the University of Arizona.
Isaiah Thomas capped the game with a highlight-reel performance and last-second bucket to seal the win for the Huskies. Thomas froze his defender and launched an 18-foot jumper that dropped through the net as time expired, breaking the overtime tie and crowning the Washington Huskies as the first back-to-back Pac-10 tourney champions since the tournament restarted in the 1990s.
Thomas played all 45 minutes scored 28 points to lead third-seeded Washington over top-seeded Arizona 77-75.
Washington moves on to the NCAA tournament with high hopes and a strong chance for a high seed with the big finish including three straight wins over Pac-10 opponents.
NCAA tournament selection Sunday is tomorrow.
Congratulations to the Huskies, and Go Dawgs!
