Isaiah Thomas & Washington Huskies Are 2011 Pac-10 Basketball Tournament Champions

Derrick Williams of the Arizona Wildcats was the Pac-10 basketball regular season player of the year, but Isaiah Thomas of the Washington Huskies dominated the 2011 Pac-10 basketball tournament at Staples. He saved his best for the championship game against Arizona, putting up 28 points on 10 of 16 shooting, nailed four three pointers, grabbed five rebounds, dished seven assists and got two steals. And he nailed the buzzer-beater, which you can watch here in all its Gus-gasm glory. Washington wins back-to-back Pac-10 tournaments to punch their ticket to March Madness for sure.

Williams was excellent himself, putting up 24 points on 8 of 14 shooting and grabbing 11 rebounds. Terrence Ross supported Thomas with 16 points, and Solomon Hill and Kevin Parrom added 12 points for Arizona. C.J. Wilcox nailed a three of a Thomas pass to tie the game at the end of regulation, and Parrom nailed a three to tie the game near the end of overtime, setting up Thomas's heroics.

This is the final Pac-10 basketball tournament, since next year the conference will expand with the addition of Colorado and Utah to the Pac-12.
