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 the title of Pontiac Game Changing Performance of the NCAA Basketball regular season.
With this accolade, Washington State University earns a contribution to its general scholarship fund from Pontiac.
One of eight nominated performances, Rochestie's play earned the most votes from fans nationwide. Fans were able to go to pontiac.com/ncaa, where they could view video clips of the eight nominees, and vote from March 5 through March 14. CBS announced the Pontiac Game Changing Performance of the NCAA Basketball regular season on its Selection Sunday Show earlier today (March 15).
