The Cal Poly Pomona Broncos found a way again. Nothing surprises me about this team any more. The Broncos beat Western Washington 76-75 in overtime in West Region semifinal play.
The winning bucket came fron Dwayne Fells, off a pass from Dahir Nasser with a second left.
Austin Swift was huge with 22 points. That follows an 18-point performnance the previous night in the quarterfinals. He had two baskets in the closing minute of regulation, including a huge 3-pointer.
Swift has emerged as the leader of thit team, the same way Larry Gordon was the on-court leader in the magical run a year ago.
Now the focus will be on BYU-Hawaii. The Seasiders likely can’t wait to get their hands on the Broncos since they are the team that ended their run last year.
Game time Monday is 7 p.m. Judging the way BYU–Hawaii disposed of Cal State San Bernardino, it should be a great game.
