Marcus Marshall hit an off-balance 15-footer with less than a second remaining to give Nevada an 87-85 victory over Washington on Sunday night in Seattle.

Marshall was unable to shake the defense of Washington’s Matisse Thybulle, but was able to get the off-balance attempt off and slide it over the rim with 0.2 seconds remaining, giving the Wolf Pack their second win this season over a Pac-12 school.

Washington (4-5) had rallied from an 11-point halftime deficit and pulled even at 85-85 with 12 seconds left on two free throws by Markelle Fultz.

Marshall finished with a game-high 32 points on 11-of-24 shooting, including three huge baskets in the final four minutes. D.J. Fenner added 16 of his 20 points in the second half for Nevada (8-2).

Fultz and David Crisp both finished with 21 points for Washington.

CC Spokane 111, Lane 73: Garrett Hull scored 24 points and Levi Taylor 21 and the Sasquatch (7-2) hit 17 of 37 3-point attempts in beating the host Titans (3-3) to win the consolation bracket at the Dale J. Bates Invitational in Eugene.

Cameron Gay led the way from the arc with 5 3-pointers and 17 points for CCS. Ryan Alexander added 13 points and Cesar Sandoval 10.
