MONMOUTH, Ore. — It took three overtimes and a late barrage of three-pointers, but Central Washington saw its five-game winning streak snapped in a 118-113 loss to Western Oregon on Saturday.

Western Oregon’s Jordan Wiley forced overtime with a tying three-pointer — the third Wolves three-pointer in as many possessions over the final 14 seconds.

Neither team was able to stay ahead until the third overtime period, when Western Oregon outscored the Wildcats 8-1 in the final two minutes.
