He hit a 3-pointer, converted a three-point play and made 5-of-5 free throws; as time wound down, he drew a foul just past half-court and the officials ruled that he was in the act of shooting and sent him to the free-throw line for three shots, and he made them all.

Pepperdine missed two 3-pointers and then a pair of free throws with 9.6 seconds left. Marshall corralled the rebound and made one of two free throws for a three-point lead.

Portland fouled with 3.6 seconds left and Pepperdine again missed both free throws. The rebound was tipped out of bounds to the Pilots with 1.3 seconds remaining. Portland then tossed the inbounds toward their own basket, but it trickled out of bounds and gave the Waves one last shot to tie it up. Lamond Murray got off a corner 3-pointer, but Marshall blocked it as time expired.
