Evergreen's attempt at a game-winning shot began with a 70-foot inbounds pass that was deflected by Sequim's Tim Guan and recovered by the Wolverines' Tuan Le in the left corner.
Le's off balance triple attempt dropped off the backboard into the hands of Evergreen's Christian Sainz, who missed a point-blank putback as time expired.
Bedlam ensued with jubilant Sequim students mobbing their team at center court.
