It will take one more victory over a familiar foe to add this beauty of a slogan:
“Bound for Springfield”
In one of the most complete games played by both teams this season, Broncos’ All-CCAA forward Dwayne Fells scored the game-winning basket with 0.6 seconds remaining in overtime as the Broncos upset No. 15 Western Washington 76-75 in the NCAA West Regional semifinals Saturday night.
“Our guys showed poise, character and determination tonight,” said coach Greg Kamansky, whose team now moves on to the title game for the second straight year against BYU Hawaii for the right to advance to the Elite Eight. “We showed our experience tonight with one of the most competitive games I’ve been a part of because both teams were championship-caliber in a great college game.”
The Broncos, winners of 17 of their last 18 games, and Seasiders (22-5 overall) will play at 7 p.m. Monday night in the title game.
