These 5 buzzer-beaters have implications on this year's NCAA tournament
UCLA beats Washington, Feb. 7 »2 of 5 «
Both teams desperately needed a victory going into Thursday night's game, as the Huskies had lost four of five and UCLA had dropped three of its previous four.
With Washington trailing 57-55, former Pleasant Grove High School star C.J. Wilcox hit a driving layup with 10 seconds to go to knot the score for the Huskies.
Without taking a timeout, UCLA's lone senior, Larry Drew II, brought the ball up court, waited to find a lane, then drove, popped and hit a 15-foot fadeaway jumper at the buzzer to deliver the Bruins a much-needed win.
UCLA now sits just a game out of first place in the Pac-12, at 7-3 in league and 18-7 overall, with a pair of wins — against Missouri and Arizona — over ranked teams.
The loss may prove costly for Washington, however, which sits in the "Next Four Out" category on Lunardi's latest Bracketology. The Huskies are now 13-10 overall and 5-5 in Pac-12 play, with bad losses to Albany, Nevada and Utah.
