CLEVELAND, Ohio - On December 15th, a game that appeared to be headed for overtime with only 2.2 seconds remaining ended when Cleveland State hit a miracle shot. Senior point guard Cedric Jackson hit a 60-foot buzzer beater to defeat Syracuse 72-69, clinching a victory for Cleveland State and earning the Vikings a nomination for Pontiac Game Changing Performance of the regular season.
Now it is up to Cleveland State fans to determine if the Vikings will earn a Pontiac Game Changing Performance for the regular season of NCAA Basketball. Cleveland State fans can go to http://www.pontiac.com/ncaa, where they can view video clips of the eight nominees and vote for the Vikings!
Voting begins on Thursday, March 5th and ends at midnight on Saturday, March 14th. CBS will announce the Pontiac Game Changing Performance of the NCAA Basketball regular season on the Selection Sunday Show on March 15th.
The winning university earns a contribution to their general scholarship fund from Pontiac. In addition, one lucky individual who visits pontiac.com/ncaa and enters the "Pontiac Pick and Roll Promotion" will win a trip for four to this year's NCAA Final Four in Detroit.
