The referees noticed, and a technical foul was assessed.
Wyoming seemed to have sealed the victory with a 62 59 lead and possession with 1 minute, 30 seconds remaining in overtime, but Adams was called for carrying and UW coach Larry Shyatt lost his nerve.

"I really don't shoot that, not a running hook. But it went in tonight," Nance said. "It went in tonight."
And just like his shot in Reno, this one didn't hit the rim. Instead, it dropped softly through the net with 3 seconds left.
