Redhawks stun Fresno State 85-84
SEATTLE (AP)—Cervante’ Burrell scored on a baseline reverse with 8.3 seconds left, then came up with a steal on the final Fresno State possession, and Seattle capped a night honoring Hall of Famer Elgin Baylor with a frantic 85-84 win over the Bulldogs on Thursday night.
The Redhawks rallied from down 81-75 with 1:40 left.
Seattle took an 83-82 lead on Garrett Lever’s follow of Aaron Broussard’s miss with 37.6 seconds left, Lever’s only basket of the game. Fresno State’s Greg Smith responded with a layup at the other end with 24 seconds left.
On the Redhawks’ final possession, Chris Gweth drove into the lane and found Burrell cutting baseline to give Seattle the lead. Fresno State had one last chance but Steven Shepp was stripped by Burrell who dribbled up court before throwing the ball up toward the giant scoreboard above midcourt as the buzzer sounded.
