SAN MARCOS, Texas — Seattle University's last-ditch effort to score five points in three seconds for an amazing comeback came up just short Thursday in a 67-65 defeat against Texas State in men's Western Athletic Conference basketball.

The Redhawks' Louis Green nailed a jumper with three seconds left to make it 67-65, and then David Trimble tied up Joel Wright of Texas State (9-19, 4-11) for a jump ball. With the possession arrow in Seattle U's favor, and with two second left, the Redhawks still had a chance.

Seattle's Chad Rasmussen got a good look at a three-point attempt, but his shot hit the front rim.

Rasmussen led Seattle (7-19, 2-14) with 18 points. The Redhawks outshot the Bobcats (48 percent to 40 percent) and out-rebounded them (37-28) but were hurt by 19 turnovers.
