The game between the University of Washington and Seattle University took an unusual turn last night with less then 2 minutes remaining. In a game that never seemed to end Seattle had 6 players foul out of the game leaving only four players to finish the game. Seattle's coach Cameron Dollar who helped led the 1995 UCLA Bruins to the national championship had one player left he could have played but opted not to because the player Adam Eakles is a red shirt freshman. If he played it would have ruined a year of eligibility in a game that was already a blowout with Washington winning 123-76.
