Western Washington university guard Rico Wilkins makes a steal with nine seconds to play and the Vikings up 60-58. The steal allowed Richard Woodworth an opportunity to sink two game-clinching free throws, as WWU beat Seattle Pacific 62-58 on Tuesday, March 19, to claim the NCAA Divison II Men's Basketball West Regional title for a second straight year. Vikings fans storm the court to celebrate the win with the team.
