Damian Lillard's two free throws with six seconds left, lifted the Weber State Wildcats to an 82-81 victory Saturday afternoon over Drake University in the third place game of the 33rd Annual Great Alaska Shootout in Anchorage, Alaska.
The two free throws came on a bizarre call. Drake took an 81-80 lead with 20 seconds left on a driving lay up by Rayvonte Rice. The Wildcats called time with 15 seconds left to set up the potential winning basket, but Damian Lillard was called for an offensive foul driving to the hoop with eight seconds left giving Drake the ball.
But Drake's Aaron Hawley grabbed the ball in jubilation and slammed it to the floor. Hawley was called for a technical foul. WSU coach Randy Rahe put Damian Lillard on the line and he calmly sank both shots giving him a game, and season high, 31 points.
Drake then inbounded the ball and Kurt Alexander drove the lane throwing up a driving lay up which bounced off the rim.
