I did wake up in the middle of the night but couldn't find a feed for this so I didn't see anything. But it must have been quite a finish.
Fullerton had the ball in a tie game in the closing moments but turned it over on an offensive foul with 5.3 seconds left.
Central Michigan pushed the ball up the floor and Jalin Thomas knocked down a 21-foot 3-pointer from the right wing at the buzzer to win the game for the Chippewas. Thomas finished with a career high 21 points.
Fullerton led by as many as ten in the first half, but the CMU chipped at the lead and had it to four at the intermission.
The Rainbow Classic continues overnight tonight as Fullerton battles host Hawaii and Central takes on Montana State.
