SEATTLE – Grant Leep’s 3-point play with 34 seconds left in overtime gave the Washington Huskies an 83-81 victory Friday over the Seattle Pacific Falcons in a preseason exhibition game at Brougham Pavilion.

The Huskies trailed 81-80 before Leep dropped a soft 4-foot left-handed hookshot on which he was fouled by the Falcons’ Abe Fox. Leep sunk the free throw to give Washington a two-point lead.

Seattle Pacific was led by the 26 points of John Hubbard, who put the game into overtime with a 3-pointer with 28.5 seconds left in regulation. It was Hubbard’s fourth 3-pointer of the game.

Seattle Pacific also received a strong performance from Oak Harbor High School grad Brannon Stone, who scored 21 points, while Nick Johnson added 14 and Eric Sandrin scored 10.

Will Perkins and Greg Clark scored 17 points each for Washington, and David Dixon added 10. Perkins also grabbed nine rebounds.

It was the first game of the season for the two Seattle schools, which are five miles apart, and the first time the teams have faced off since 1982.

Washington grabbed a 75-70 lead on a 3-point play by Clark, who made a layup and followed with a free throw with 3:44 left in regulation. Seattle Pacific came back and scored the final five points, capped by Hubbard’s shot from outside the arc that pushed the game to overtime.

With 17:02 remaining in the game, Hubbard stole a Marlon Shelton pass in the backcourt and sunk a 3-pointer to give the Falcons a 46-43 lead, their first since holding an 11-9 advantage six minutes into the game.

Hubbard was an all-Pacific West Conference selection last season and averaged 13.7 points per game.

Washington regained the lead at 59-57 on a layup by Perkins with 9:25 left in regulation.

The Falcons, ranked 17th in NCAA Division II, are coming off their most successful season in which they won 27 games and made a Final Four appearance. The team lost seven seniors, including four starters.

The Huskies finished the 1999-2000 season tied for eighth place in the Pac-10 and posted a 10-20 record.
