3.2 Seconds Left

2nd free throw was good. San Diego State fouled to send Daniel Mullings to the line. He made the first foul shot and since they were down by 2 with 3.2 seconds left, he missed the 2nd on purpose to try and set up an offensive rebound and put-back. But San Diego State got the rebound with 1.9 seconds left. Now they are at the foul line.

Another Timeout

Aztecs are in the double bonus and will shoot 2 free throws. 1st free throw... MISS. It's a one-possession game. Another timeout was called before the 2nd foul shot. It's 70-68 San Diego State.
