But the elation evapoated on the next possession as Columbia State Community College’s Arturs Bremmers knocked down the game-winning 3-pointer at the buzzer to give CSCC (29-3) an 81-78 win over SLCC (27-7) in the "Sweet 16" of the NJCAA Division I championships in Hutchinson, Kan.

Tallon Robertson and Nick Jenson scored 12 each for Westminster; Colton Moon, Blake Skidmore and Jordan Pryor each added 10.

• The top-seeded Westminster women open NAIA play Thursday at 12:15 p.m. in Frankfort, Ky., against No. 8 seed William Woods.
