PULLMAN, Wash. - Taylor Rochestie's 3-pointer with 2.3 seconds left in overtime, which lifted the Cougars to a 51-49 upset of No. 14 Arizona State on Feb. 28, has earned Washington State a Pontiac Game Changing Performance nomination.
Now it is up to Washington State fans to determine if the Cougars will earn a Pontiac Game Changing Performance for the regular season of NCAA Basketball. Washington State fans can go to pontiac.com/ncaa, where they can view video clips of the eight nominees and vote for the Cougars!
Voting begins on Thursday, March 5 and ends at midnight on Saturday, March 14. CBS will announce the Pontiac Game Changing Performance of the NCAA Basketball regular season on the Selection Sunday Show on March 15.
The winning university earns a contribution to their general scholarship fund from Pontiac. In addition, one lucky individual who visits pontiac.com/ncaa and enters the "Pontiac Pick and Roll Promotion" will win a trip for four to this year's NCAA Final Four in Detroit.
