The undefeated No. 5-ranked Western Washington University men’s basketball team changed its annual ROOT Sports-televised rivalry against Central Washington University from a stunning upset to a sweet celebration in 5.5 seconds.
That’s how long it took WWU guard Rico Wilkins to drive the length of the floor and find teammate Paul Jones under the basket for the game-winning bucket with 2.2 seconds left.
The Western’s men’s basketball team is now 13-0 on the season.
