Trent Lockett matched his career high with 24 points, including the game-winning basket with 8.4 seconds left, and Arizona State defeated Weber State 59-58 Friday night in the semifinals of the Carrs-Safeway Great Alaska Shootout.
Weber State (2-3) took just its third lead of the game, 58-57, when Damian Lillard hit two free throws with 17.5 seconds left.

The game featured a dozen ties. Arizona led 57-52 with 3:57 remaining on a free throw by Lockett, but didn't score again until Lockett's game-winner.
