Thornton capped a thrilling game between basketball behemoths, hitting an off-balance 3-pointer with 20 seconds left to give the sixth-ranked Blue Devils enough cushion to finish off a 68-61 win over No. 14 Kansas for its fifth Maui Invitational title.
Thornton hit one 3-pointer with 1:10 left and gave the Blue Devils the cushion they needed with his second, the shot clock winding down, a host of Jayhawks in his face.
