Washington State's Klay Thompson has an older brother, and he's pretty good, too.

Check out Pepperdine senior Mychel Thompson hitting a 35-footer at the buzzer to send Saturday's game against San Diego into overtime, with the Waves going on to win 70-63.



Mychel Thompson went on to score 12 of the team's 13 points in the extra period and scored 21 of the Waves' final 26 points.

Helped by a missed free throw and Thompson's shot, Pepperdine avoided losing to San Diego and stayed in the hunt for a semi-decent seed in the WCC tournament.

Thompson's efforts were especially needed after the team suspended guard Keion Bell for the remainder of the season. Bell, the WCC's second-leading scorer, averaged 18.9 points per game.
