PULLMAN, Wash. — Marcus Tsohonis scored a career-high 29 points, including a winning floater in the lane with 2.4 seconds left, and Washington edged rival Washington State 65-63.
It was an offensive struggle for both teams but a thrilling finish was set up when Jamal Bey only 1 of 2 free throws to give the Huskies a 63-61 lead with 15.5 seconds to go.
Washington State point guard Noah Williams took the inbounds pass and raced the length of the court, going down the lane for a layup with 10 seconds left to tie it at 63. Tsohonis went the other way and drove into the lane, making a floater over Williams from just inside the foul line. Williams’ half-court heave at the buzzer went over the backboard. Aljaz Kunc scored 14 for WSU.
